Tennis was never meant to be an inclusive, elitist sport. Tennisbloc fosters an inclusive, positive community where students can learn with a fun and intentional approach. We want everyone to feel included and empowered to take part in a sport that can change lives for the better through cultivating a community of friends and fun that challenge players to grow and improve their skills (while making a friend or two)!
We've spent years researching and incorporating the best pathways, drills and activities into our lesson plans to create an ideal lesson plan that's catered to each specific group of participants. Most notably, we incorporate much of the USTA Net Generation lesson plans into our own lesson plans, resulting in the latest and most engaging ways of learning new tennis skills.
We believe not only in making it easy for everyone to easily get plugged into tennis and learn, but we also provide the opportunity for juniors to participate in Junior Team Tennis, the official USTA junior competition league, which is offered in the spring, summer and fall. This gives students a chance to put their skills to the test and play in local, low competition matches to further grow and improve their game.
