About Tennis Lessons

Confidence – Achievement – Technique
The Menlo Tennis Academy is designed as a beginner tennis program for children age 6-12 years, who want to learn the sport of tennis in a supportive, community-based program. Menlo Swim and Sport is a proven expert in the area of youth sports instruction and training, and the Menlo Tennis Academy is an integral piece of our youth sports program.

Youth Tennis Program
The Menlo Tennis Academy uses a dynamic style of instruction designed to keep kids engaged, while building a foundation of essential skills important to the development of youth tennis players. Smaller courts, lighter and lower bouncing balls, and smaller and lighter racquets fit your child’s size. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, all while developing skills that will last a lifetime.

Tennis Lessons – Group
The Menlo Tennis Academy is a tennis development and training program with individual and group instruction for children. Tennis Pro Gil Hernandez provides individualized attention, helping all players reach their potential. Gil is known for his “get after it,” style of coaching that encourages enjoyment of the game and cardiovascular fitness.

Tennis Hitting Partner
