Welcome to The Natick Racquet Club
Natick’s Zip program makes tennis fit the players. Smaller courts and low bounce balls allow 4-8 yr. olds to experience tennis sooner! We use the USTA Quick Start program.
Zip Tennis has 4 levels:
Pre-Zip: 4-5 yr. old beginners
Zip I: 6-7 yr. old beginners
Zip II: 7-8 yr. old players that can rally in a small court
Zip III: players rally cross court at Zip II level
The USA Tennis program is designed for beginning to intermediate tennis players ages 8 – 14. Beginning players learn to rally, serve and keep score. More experienced players develop technical skills and are encouraged to participate in our weekend match play programs.
Junior Excellence Program (JEP):
Ages 8 – 17
This program is for competitive players looking to develop their skills for USTA tournament play or high school tennis. The younger age groups are in the Champions group and the older age groups are part of our high school program. In addition to footwork stroke production and high percentage tactics, some classes include fitness, nutrition and mental toughness training. Participation is by invitation only.
High School Training Program:
7th – 12th Graders
Our classes are for intermediate to advanced players with match play experience.
We offer three levels:
- Div. 3 is for 7th – 9th graders preparing for a first high school season
- Div. 2 is for junior varsity players
- Div. 1 is for varsity level players.
Match Play Program
We offer match play programs Friday evenings, Saturday late afternoons, and Sunday afternoon. We strongly believe that in order for a student to progress in tennis they should play matches in addition to their instructional program. We offer various levels of match play from the 36’ to the 60’ ft. courts, as well as full court play for different ages and levels.
Private Lessons & Small Groups
Natick has all certified USPTA or USPTR professionals who are always available for private, semi-private or special group instruction, based on their individual schedules.
