Free Youth and Adult Tennis Clinics


The Lake Norman Tennis Association and Lake Norman Tennis Academy will host free tennis clinics for youth and adults at Bailey Road Park this fall, starting September 8 for adults and September 10 for youth. These free lessons are for participants with no previous tennis experience - true beginners. The program will run on a weekly basis for five sessions. Registration will be available to Cornelius residents only August 15 through August 29. Beginning Monday, August 29, non-residents will be able to register for any remaining spots. Online registration is not available for this program.  Please stop by our offices at Cornelius Town Hall or call us at (704) 892-6031 to register. Participants that have registered for two (2) previous free clinic sessions will not be permitted to register for any additional free clinics.

Fall Tennis Schedule for Youth

All youth classes are held every afternoon Monday through Thursday. Clinic fees are based on attendance 2 to 3 days per week, but we encourage kids to attend as much as possible and if you are able to make all 4 days, there is no additional charge. The more time spent on the court, the quicker the kids see progress and improvement!
