Welcome to the Mantua Junior Tennis page. The junior tennis program is geared for beginner and intermediate players. Thank you for a wonderful 2020 of junior tennis. Stay tuned for camps and clinics in 2021 which are likely to start in March when the weather gets warmer.
2020 Program Highlights
Here are some of the features of this year’s program:
- Conducting separate 9-10 year olds and 8 & Under clinics to achieve better teacher/student ratio
- In the Spring, offsetting the tennis clinics with swim practice so kids can participate in both after school
- Summer morning clinics
- Additional practices for those playing Tyson’s Cup matches that week
- Open Play. Once a week, Open Play is an opportunity for juniors to just show up to the courts, be paired with other juniors, and play matches, all under the supervision of one of our pros. Think of it as “pick-up tennis.”
Junior tennis also participates in a Tysons Cup league, where juniors play against other juniors from local area clubs. All Tysons Cup matches are played on Tuesdays or Thursdays in the afternoon. Anyone in the junior tennis program can register for a Tysons Cup match. A limited number of matches are played so it’s possible that everyone who registered may not play. The tennis pro determines the lineup based on a number of factors, such as who’s available, tournament results, and practice participation. For those selected to play in a Tysons Cup match, a Tysons Cup practice is held on the prior Monday or Wednesday before the match just for the players chosen to play on the next day.
