Youth Programming

Saint Paul Urban Tennis offers a wide variety of programming for young people. Whether they are looking to try something new or get on a pathway to compete at the highest levels, there is something at SPUT for all youth. We offer three programming categories: Lessons, Camps, and Competition.

(psst... are you an out of school time provider? a P.E. teacher? a community organization? a recreation center? We love building partnerships! Email johnny@urbantennis.org to learn more about what we offer youth engagement organizations!)

Youth Lessons

Lessons are a great place for beginner and intermediate players to learn and grow their game. Our lessons offer a fun and friendly community environment focused on developing a player's tennis and life skills. Players will receive coaching on fundamentals, opportunities to drill and practice, tons of fun games, and will grow through our SPUT S.P.I.R.I.T (service, perseverance, integrity, responsibility, imagination, teamork) Curriculum.
