Each month has a variety of events from USTA tournaments and Play Days, Junior Team Tennis, High School Open Gym, homeschool programs, and high performance opportunities for those athletes wanting the extreme push to excel – we have something for everyone.
- Player Development
The Player Development Program is for players that are in early-mid stages of development. Goals are to develop a love of tennis, coordination, balance, athletic ability, and stroke technique.
Our Excel Program is for ages 11-14 that have had some experience playing on a middle school team or in a tournament, have gone through our Player Development Program, or had several years of previous instruction.
Lastly, the Competitive Program is for all high school players (including incoming freshman). Equal emphasis of training placed on singles and doubles with players divided by ability and experience for each class. The goals in this group is to prepare athletes for competition, from the high school level to the national level of tournament play.
Private lessons are highly encouraged, particularly during the 8-11 years of development to build a solid technical base. All players wishing to accelerate their improvement will take a private at least once/week, attend group 2-3 times/week, and play in a competitive event 1-2 times/month.
The certified teaching staff at Eastlake have decades of experience teaching players of all levels and ages, coaching high school teams, developing collegiate athletes and nationally ranked players.
Adult players have an abundance of options for all ages and levels of play at Eastlake. One of our most popular features is the Drill Program that caters to 3.0-4.5 USTA rated players.
