A Junior is anyone between the age of 6 and 17 years old on January 1 of the current year. Juniors are given priority-booking Mondays to Fridays, 4 to 6 pm. During non-prime hours and exclusive of scheduled events, all members (adult and junior) have equal tagging privileges. Adults Prime hours are Monday to Friday, 7 to 11 pm, Saturday, Sunday, and holidays, 8 am to 1 pm.

 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the booking times may change and juniors will be notified.

Juniors must be Central Tennis Club members to participate in any program.

 

Returning junior member registration was open on February 1, 2022, while new junior member registration was open on February 16, 2022. Both are now closed. Please refer to the Junior Member Registration section on the Fees and Registration page for any updated information on dates and process. Please complete an activities form with registration. Our Junior Director will let you know how to become a member if you are not one yet.

 

COVID-19 update: We have tentatively made up our possible schedule for the 2022 season. This may change with regards to the number of juniors allowed for each clinic or may be cancelled. Choose a clinic that best suits your junior and should the clinic be allowed, the Junior Director will notify you. No payment is required until the clinic begins.

The Junior Program at Central Tennis Club is one big PARTY!

Central Tennis Club offers Spring, Summer, and Fall clinics. Our most popular is our Spring clinic and we often have a waitlist. To avoid being disappointed, sign your junior up early. 

 

Have a blast at the Junior Opening Day, the Parent & Child Tournament, and the Junior Club Championships! All events include games, round robins, refreshments/pizza, and prizes at no extra cost! All levels welcome. Pre-registration is preferred to purchase food and prizes. 

 

Team tennis is a lot of fun and competitive. Come to the tryouts in April! Intercounty Tennis Association (ICTA) matches begin in May. The team plays away alternating Saturdays, 9 am to 1 pm.

 

Your participation makes the Junior Program fun. Come down and participate in some or all our activities. It’s a great way to have fun and meet new friends.

Club members: Are there any other activities you would like to see, or programs you would like us to offer? Questions?
