Overview

Download a summary of the 2019 Mantua Junior Tennis Program.

Welcome to the Mantua Junior Tennis page. The junior tennis program is geared for beginner and intermediate players. It is organized into two sessions: Spring and Summer. The Spring session begins May 20th and continues through June 14th, coinciding with the last day of school. The Summer session begins on Monday, June 17th, and finishes on Friday, July 26th.

Clinics are organized by age group. During the Spring session, clinics are held Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. During the Summer session, clinics are held Monday through Thursday. Also during the Summer session is Open Play, which is held on Friday mornings. Open Play is an opportunity for juniors to come to the courts, be paired with other juniors, and play matches – all under the supervision of one of our pros.


2019 Program Highlights

Here are some of the features of this year’s program:

  • Conducting separate 9-10 year olds and 8 & Under clinics to achieve better teacher/student ratio
  • In the Spring, offsetting the tennis clinics with swim practice so kids can participate in both after school
  • Summer morning clinics
  • Additional practices for those playing Tyson’s Cup matches that week
  • Open Play.  Once a week, Open Play is an opportunity for juniors to just show up to the courts, be paired with other juniors, and play matches, all under the supervision of one of our pros.  Think of it as “pick-up tennis.”

Tysons Cup

Junior tennis also participates in a Tysons Cup league, where juniors play against other juniors from local area clubs. All Tysons Cup matches are played on Tuesdays or Thursdays in the afternoon. Anyone in the junior tennis program can register for a Tysons Cup match. A limited number of matches are played so it’s possible that everyone who registered may not play. The tennis pro determines the lineup based on a number of factors, such as who’s available, tournament results, and practice participation. For those selected to play in a Tysons Cup match, a Tysons Cup practice is held on the prior Monday or Wednesday before the match just for the players chosen to play on the next day. Please see the Clinics and Practice Schedule for the complete schedule by age group.
