The RTA and our community partners offer opportunities for anyone with an interest in tennis to get involved. For the beginner who has never played, we recommend Try Tennis. With a small investment, junior players can go from couch to court in a few short weeks.  When you want to dip your toe into tournament play, Try Tournaments will give juniors the opportunity to spend a few hours competing against players of similar skill level.  We hope you'll become as passionate about tennis as we are.

Provides additional match play to new players and introduces them to tournament play

Try Play is a learn-by-doing class for juniors that teaches beginning junior players how to play a match. Try Play focuses less on technique and more on positioning, strategy and scoring. This class is perfect for players who have taken Try Tennis or those who already know how to hit ground strokes, volley and serve. Cost: $30.00
