Junior Tennis Program


  




NCTC is proud of all of the programs available for JUNIOR TENNIS players at our club.



SUNDAY AFTERNOON JUNIOR PRIORITY COURT TIME: Sunday afternoons from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm are priority court time for juniors. This is an excellent opportunity for the juniors to work on what they’ve been learning in lessons.

 

CHALLENGE MATCHES: Challenge matches may be arranged during junior times; this is a good opportunity to gain match experience, and contributes to the tennis ladder results. Talk to the club Pro Brian Draxl to see if this activity is suitable for you.

 

JUNIOR INVITATIONAL EVENTS: We plan to hold our very popular “Junior Invitational” events for intermediate and advanced players on selected Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons during the summer. This may comprise singles and doubles play in an individual or teamā€oriented format. Watch for notices in the clubhouse.

 

JUNIOR CLUB TOURNAMENTS:  We plan to run our annual club championship singles tournaments for juniors again this year. Watch the junior board in the clubhouse for the notice of the tournament dates.
