Our objective is to help juniors develop their skills and begin competing as early as possible. Cherokee has earned a reputation for helping develop some of the best players in the state. We also put great effort into improving the play of our recreational juniors who get an early start in the game through the 10- and-under program, junior lessons, and leagues.

10 & Under
Membership is not required for our tots and beginners group or private classes. The USTA’s 10 & under format provides the tools to help foster the growth of those skills in players as young as 4 and 5 years old. We’re excited to offer USTA’s concept of smaller courts, lower nets, shorter racquets and slower balls, as the cornerstone of our junior program.
A great way to create more matches for our juniors, as well as to build camaraderie, is to play interclub matches against other clubs from around the area, and sometimes from clubs statewide. We always participate in the summer All-City Interclub and Doubles Championship every June-Aug, and try to host or travel to another club at other times of the year. It’s always good competition and a fun time!

Junior Summer Camps
Day and week long camps available for juniors of all ages and abilities. Daily mini camps are 1.5 hours long and are available on a daily basis Monday-Thursday all summer, with supervised match play on Fridays. The 3 week-long training camps are designed for families who need to be able to drop their player off at the beginning of the workday, and pick them up at the end. Their games will definitely advance through these intense week-long programs.
Junior league play is offered for those junior members who wish to augment their group lessons with singles and doubles match play. Competitive play is the best way for players to improve their game. Leagues are available all year long. Winners and runners-up in each league receive trophies.
Individual and semi-private lessons from our highly-trained professional staff are available. Please contact the Tennis Office for more information or to schedule lessons. (608) 249-1000
