Lessons

Youth Tennis & Pickleball Program

Lakeside Chautauqua offers a United States Tennis Association (USTA) 10 & Under QuickStart tennis program. The program is unique because it uses portable nets to create smaller courts, different size rackets and three different types of tennis balls that are introduced sequentially as children develop their strokes and learn to rally successfully.

By using slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls, shorter and lighter rackets and smaller courts, children of all ages are able to grasp the fundamentals of tennis more easily and develop their skills more successfully.  All lessons are free and no pre-registration is required.

Lessons are offered in the summer at the Williams Tennis Campus and are cancelled on July 4 and for special clinics and tournaments. See weekly Lakesider newspaper for details.
