YOUTH AGES 5 and Above
Net Generation Tennis Programs
Oakland Tennis Center is growing their youth tennis program by joining the USTA Program - Net Generation. Net Generation is a celebration of a game where no one sits on the sidelines. Tennis is easy to learn and tailored for all ages and abilities, giving kids a game that will help them build friendships and learn skills they’ll use for life.
Tennis camps are a fantastic way for youth to stay active and learn new skills during the summer months. Typically, participants are grouped by age and skill level and can choose how often they prefer to attend.
Youth & Adult Lessons
Private lessons and Semi-Private lessons will be available for youth & adults. Lessons can be one-on-one or in a group setting. You can also get your own group together for a group lesson.
Tournaments & Events
Round robins, seasonal special events and a variety of local and USTA sanctioned tournaments occur throughout the year.
