City clinics  -  Please sign up on the Active network.  Links are under the description of each clinic.

We have limits on the size of our clinics due to covid 19

If you have a clinic that asks you what days of the week you plan to come, you cannot deviate from the days you choose (and you must choose the days)

If it rains, at this point the indoor courts are not open so clinic will be cancelled.

Our clinics are cost friendly and thus we cannot carry over or refund any missed clinics.

We plan to have a wait list for clinics and may add a second instructor if enough people register. If you are willing to sign up, add your name to the wait list. You will be notified if enough people sign up for another instructor.

Ball Color Chart

Tennis is now easier for younger kids to play with the addition of different colored balls. These variations of tennis balls have a lower compression than the regular yellow balls. The different colored balls bounce lower for children’s height and are more forgiving on player errors in technique. The age groups for USTA (United States Tennis Association) tennis are in the following ball color categories:

Red Balls: 8 and Under
Orange Balls: 9 - 10
Green Balls: 11 - 12
Yellow Balls: 13+

  • Orange or Green Balls may be used in 13+ age groups in City of Auburn Tennis clinics according to skill level and drill being practiced.
  • USTA rules and regulations for youth tennis are subject to change according to USTA policies and standards.
