Frequently Asked Questions
What to do if it is raining?
We try to give as much notice as possible when a lesson is cancelled due to rain or heat. We have a text messaging service that will advise if a lesson is cancelled and when it will be made up.
If in the event you have not received a text and it is raining in your area please keep in mind it may just be a local shower that has missed the tennis club.
At what age can my child start lessons?
At CTS we start children at the age of 3 in our Little Tennis Program. This is a fun way to start learning motor and perceptual skills that will help them play tennis, as they get older. These lessons are held side by side a ladies group lesson so mum is never to far away. For more information on our Little Tennis Program.
