Winter Indoor Tennis at Newton South

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

Join us for indoor tennis this Winter with JXS Tennis Academy.  All players need to bring their own racket and bottle of water.  Please bring a clean, dry pair of sneakers for the gym.  If it is raining or snowy outside this may mean bringing a separate pair of sneakers to change into.

Because of the scheduling of classes and limited time availability, make-ups are not offered for this program if you need to miss a class.

What do the ball colors mean?
Red Ball:  19/21-inch rackets are used with red felt balls.  This means children can control the ball and racket, develop proper swing technique and get a real sense of playing the game.
Orange Ball:  21/23-inch rackets are used with an orange ball that is lower compression that travels a little faster and farther than the red ball.  Players are taught proper technique for all strokes-focusing on ground stroke development, net play and serving. Footwork and beginning level of basic strategy – how to keep score and rally.
Green Ball:  25/27 inch rackets are used.  The green ball has less pressure than the standard yellow ball (75% pressure) and easier to hit.  This stage is for players that can rally, volley and beginning to understand strategy and tactics.
Yellow Ball:  Is designed for high school and adult competitive players.  Designed for players that have the ability and strength to use a standard size tennis ball.
