    Welcome to Nikki's Tennis Crew Website. Different portions of my website are updated on a weekly basis, so please come back often to see what is happening in our world of tennis.

    Nikki's Tennis Crew is a comprehensive tennis program for ages 3-100 for the social player to the competitive player. Many players who start in the junior program graduate to the adult program. Group and private lessons are offered for all levels. Team Tennis and Tournaments are offered for both junior and adult players interested in the competitive aspects of tennis. Look thru my web site for more information on programs offered.

    Junior Team Tennis: Parents who are interested in having their children play team tennis, please contact me.

    Quickstart Junior Classes are classes on modified courts for younger kids. The juniors play from doubles alley to doubles alley over a small net and with balls that are bigger and have a slower bounce. It is wonderful to see the younger kids have rallys. The equipment and courts are tailored to suit their needs and abilities, kids will feel confident as soon as they pick up a racquet.

    Rally League Classes are for juniors who want competition at a modified level. Matches are played with modified nets and balls. The juniors get solid knowledge of how matches are played.

    Private Tennis Lesson are great for those of you who want personalized attention to improve your tennis game. I have a couple weekly spots available. Monthly lessons are great to if you need little touch ups.
