When we trust their talent, build their confidence, and share our passion for tennis with them, children always surprise us with outstanding results. Our mission is to give each child memorable and empowering tennis experiences they will be proud of. Tennis Central has one goal – to turn your child into the best tennis version of him/herself. For this reason, our staff of directors and counselors are highly trained and Tennis Central Certified. Our Directors are all former or active professional and college-level players, but what sets them apart is our belief in exponential improvements.

- The History of Tennis: Learning about the history of tennis helps to expand each player’s appreciation of the game. We may play some movies covering the origin of the game or the path to success for some tennis greats such as Serena Williams and others.
