Tennis Lessons: 

All Urban Tennis Lessons incorporate the Play First, then Play Better philosophy into instruction.  We use age appropriate equipment (racquets provided as needed) so that your children are successful, and then teach them the skills needed to improve as players. In addition, our inclusion of life skills training provides important lessons for success off the court.  We value and teach the SPUT SPIRIT – (S) service, (P) perseverance, (I) integrity, (R) responsibility, (I) imagination, and (T) teamwork. 
 
NEW THIS YEAR:  Kids ages 5-8 will spend half the lesson with an active reading activity, and the other half with tennis instruction! Please view frequently asked questions regarding this exciting change here.
 
Our six-week summer session offers daytime lessons 4 days/week for $100 or evening lessons 2 days/week for $50.
 
Fee includes t-shirt, tennis instruction, sportsmanship incentives, optional Friday Play Days and season-ending picnic.  Both daytime classes or evening classes are offered to accommodate busy families.
 

SPUT Sampler Camps: 

SPUT Sampler Camps offer a condensed version of our acclaimed summer program, with a high dose of tennis instruction for players just starting out with the sport.  Each camp runs Monday - Thursday with Fridays used only in case of inclement weather.  Participants are encouraged to participate in SPUT’s Friday Play Day events to test their skills in entry level competition.  All camps provide instruction in tennis technique, strategy, and good sportsmanship.  Kids age 8U will take a short snack and reading break in the shade with book selections that tie into our SPUT SPIRIT life skills curriculum.  Racquets provided for your use as needed.  Please wear tennis shoes, sunscreen, and bring water.
