Lynxville Summer Tennis

Lynxville Camp

The staff of the Brandon Tennis Association welcomes your child to a great summer of tennis!  We have lessons called “Lynxville Camp” for ages 5 through 14. June and July options, daytime and evening.  Our teachers are part of the Brandon Valley Lynx tennis program (current high school players, graduates, and coaches). The learning approach is play based with a focus on the ABCs of tennis—agility, balance, and coordination. We believe in creating a positive and welcoming environment for all youth players. By focusing on play, building character and championing individual challenges, we empower kids to grow and develop at their own pace. Our goal is to have them to want to continue to play and to see themselves as “tennis players.” There is no better lifelong sport!

Two locations, daytime and evening options.

EQUIPMENT: Racquets, Balls, and Shoes

Picking the Right Racquet for Kids and Adults

It is important to have the right size racquet for safety, enjoyment, and skill development. Just as baseball bats and soccer balls are smaller for kids, so are tennis racquets. The Brandon Tennis Association has racquets for use in the tennis building if you have that need.

Using the Right Ball for Your Skill Level

from midwestsports.com

If you’re just starting out or you’re introducing your kids to the sport, there are a variety of beginner tennis balls that are specially designed for slower play. The fastest tennis balls may suit the pros, but slower-moving foam tennis balls are great for teaching and training, or you could try out one of three stages of beginner balls:

  • Stage 3 (Red): These beginner balls are created for youngStage3tennisball-red.png children (typically 10 years or younger) to help build skills, develop proper movement, fine-tune coordination, and boost confidence. Approved for play on a 36-foot court format.

  • Stage 2 (Orange): These are reduced flight balls and are great forStage2tennisball-orange.png use on reduced length 60-foot courts. While more advanced than Stage 3, these will still slow down the game.

  • Stage 1 (Green): The last stage before a tournament tennis ball, these feature a slightlyStage1tennisball-green.png lower bounce and help beginners use proper technique. Typically used on a full-size 78-foot length tennis court.
