After School Classes
The best way to learn tennis is in a group with friends. Our goal is to teach the sport for lifetime enjoyment. We take pride in having our junior players participating actively on their high school varsity tennis team, often as freshmen. The after school classes are offered to all ages and levels of our junior members. Registration is done on a monthly basis with many of our players participating year round.
After school group classes are provided for Pee Wees (under 7 years old), Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced Players using the proper compression tennis balls for the age group.
High School Scrimmage – Preparing our players for the upcoming high school season is the goal of this new program. Match play with coaching is the format for this highly effective session.
Throughout the year our pro staff offers morning camps during extended school vacations including Thanksgiving vacation, winter break, spring break, and summer. These popular day camps are in addition to our highly regarded summer tennis camp.
Summer Tennis Camp – Our summer tennis camp runs from mid-June through early August with one-hour long morning classes offered at times compatible with Legendland and the swim team schedule.
Sleepy Hollow Junior Tennis Team
Our exciting junior team competes in local leagues during the summer, spring and fall in several age groups: Under 10, Under 12 and Over 13. The Lamorinda and USTA Junior Team Tennis League sees us in action during the summer months while the Diablo Valley Junior Tennis League is our spring and fall league.
Grand Slam Mixers
The Grand Slam Mixers are fun for the whole family (novice and advanced players alike) and are consistently popular events at Sleepy Hollow. Adults and top junior players enjoy playing some spirited, friendly doubles while younger members of the family participate in their own fun and games led by our pro staff. Tennis mixers are held year-round to correspond with the Grand Slam tournaments (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open)
Adult Tennis Leagues
Sleepy Hollow participates in United States Tennis Association, Northern California Section (USTA NorCal) adult Leagues throughout the year with volunteer captains managing the teams. In addition to the USTA adult leagues, we enter teams in Bay Area Ladies Leagues with matches taking place weekdays during the spring and fall. Teams practice informally in addition to organized instructional sessions with the club’s professionals.
Private and group lessons are provided seven days a week.
