We stress the importance of always trying your best, being a great sport, and most importantly HAVING FUN! We provide year-round group and private instruction to juniors of all ages. For players ready for and interested in competitive play, we participate in a variety of local leagues and tournaments.

Junior Clinics

Junior clinics are coordinated by age and ability. Newcomers to tennis will participate in our QuickStart 10-and-Under tennis program. Juniors will learn tennis fundamentals, rally and master play in a way that is fun and rewarding.

Performance-Prep Program

Players in “Performance Prep” are beginning to participate in competitive play. They can rally, serve and score games and matches. They are beginning to learn match strategy.

Performance Program

For competitive juniors aspiring to play tournaments and high school tennis, this is a great stepping-stone. Our year-round program includes intense drilling, conditioning, strategy, and match play. Players are competition-ready and compete in Diablo Valley Jr. Team Tennis, USPTA, and USTA tournaments.

Junior Quickstart Program

Junior beginner clinics are coordinated year-round by age group and teach tennis fundamentals and stroke development.

Red Ball: LEARN
Starting on a 36-foot court with a smaller net and large soft balls, we introduce players to the game and teach the basic FUNdamentals. Learn proper grip, preparation, and swing path, as well as basic footwork patterns and stances. Develop shot consistency, placement, and control with beginning rallying.
Orange Ball: DEVELOP
Moving to a 60-foot court with a softer regulation size ball, players learn more advance stroke technique while starting to cover more court. Begin to develop rally patterns and placement. Learn to hit with more spin, power, and control.
Green Ball: LEARN
Players use the green dot ball and move to a full-size court. The green dot ball bounces slightly slower and lower than the regulation ball, making it easier to rally as match play begins. Refine stroke technique and movement skills to properly cover a full-sized court. Develop a higher level of spin, pace and control.

Adult Tennis Program

We offer an exciting adult tennis program at Meadow ranging from beginner to advanced players. We strive for the perfect combination of good sport with good social vibes. Meadow organizes several adult USTA teams that compete against other local clubs.
