The Cornelius Parks & Recreation Department partners with the Lake Norman Tennis Academy and Lake Norman Tennis Association to provide tennis group and individual instruction for youth and adults. 

Lake Norman Tennis AcademyDocumentTennis Lessons for Youth at Jetton Park

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! LNTA will have make ups on Fridays when we have two or more rain days within a week.
