Using the play and stay format as the main vehicle to develop the players, they learn so much while having a blast!

At On The Line Tennis, we have developed a creative, energetic tennis program designed for your child to learn good technique and progress with our Fundamentals pathway.  Our students are assessed and put into a relevant group based on their abilities. 

 

We believe it is important for children to learn about keeping fit and healthy, competing, learning new skills, and dealing with winning and losing.  Sport gives everyone skills for life.
