TGA Premier Tennis of North DC - After School Tennis Enrichment Programs - Tennis Camps - Tennis Leagues

Empower Your Child Through Tennis

Whether this is the first exposure to tennis or you’re looking to take your child’s game to the next level, we have a program to fit your needs.usta  In partnership with the United States Tennis Association (USTA), TGA has developed a Youth Tennis Player Pathway to help guide families through the journey of learning and playing this amazing sport.

The pathway consists of TGA and USTA programs that are progressive in their skills level, knowledge requirements and challenges; yet also complementary to one another so children can participate in multiple types of programs throughout the year to continue developing and refining their game.

The common entry points for new players are through TGA’s instruction-based Tennis Enrichment Programs and Tennis Camps before moving on to programs like TGA Play Days and Leagues that focus on gaining competitive experience in a low-pressure setting.  To learn more about each type of program, click on the icons below.

Tennis Sized Right

TGA utilizes the USTA’s “Tennis Sized Right” guidelines for youth tennis equipment and courts that are tailored to the size and ability of children’s bodies to allow for quicker success and enjoyment of the game. As players grow physically and develop stronger skills, they advance to playing on courts and with equipment that gets progressively closer to standardized tennis.

Tennis Balls

Reduced compression balls bounce lower and move slower.

Tennis Racquets

Youth racquets have smaller grips so they're easier to hold and swing.

Tennis Courts

Courts are smaller so kids can cover more ground and make more shots.

"We liked the grouping by age and ability. Also the schedule broken down hour by hour gave us a clear picture of what our little one was doing. The little games like chicken launch, popcorn made it fun and our little girl didn't even realize how much she was working on the court to gain the skills she did in a week."
