Welcome to Tiger Tennis



We hope you will enjoy your experience with the Tiger Tennis program and the many benefits is has to offer. Our program provides participants with the opportunity to learn the game of tennis and practice the skills needed to be able to rally and ultimately play a match. Our focus is on creating an environment where the children have fun, learn the game, improve their skills and build self-confidence on the court.



About Tiger Tennis (2nd - 8th Grades)

Tiger Tennis was started in 2011 by parents that wanted to offer a recreation tennis program for elementary and grade school children in Tewksbury. The clinic is often "sold out" as we can accommodate only so many children on the 5 courts we have access to at Voorhees High School. 

Like most sports, tennis can be incredibly rewarding, however, for many children, it can also be a frustrating sport due to the level of skill needed to hit the ball, get it over the net and into the court.  As a result, the Tiger Tennis program focuses on having fun first while building the skills needed over time.  So our younger "Tiger Cubs" will focus on fun skill building drills and games and as they grow and develop, they will become more involved with playing real tennis, through both singles and doubles match play activities.  Of course we encourage fun in all of our grades and hope that your kids enjoy this fantastic sport!!          

Tiger Cubs (grades 2 - 5)
Focus on fun drills and games designed to motivate and develop skills at an early age   At this age, it's less important that the kids have perfect tennis strokes 
Learning and developing tennis skills at this age occurs mostly through repetition and trying new things 
Older grades will begin to transition from skill building to skill mastery and more consistent play     

Tigers (grades 6 - 8)
Learn how to keep score
Begin to learn how to play "real" games
Continued focus on skill and technique mastery with winning points established as the goal
Create a solid tennis foundation by 8th grade so the kids are ready for High School tennis
For children who know they want to play tennis in high school, we encourage them to participate in tennis camps and/or receive lessons at a local club
