Advantage Rochester Junior Tennis, directed by USPTA Professionals Jeff Wagstaff and Grace Woo, offers a comprehensive program for players 6-18 years of age. The program is offered through the Town of Pittsford Parks and Recreation Department during the outdoor season and continues indoors at the Tennis Heaven Club. The program has three parts:

1. Youth Tennis Lessons -- for beginner players 6-12. The focus is on basic strokes and games to introduce kids to the fun side of tennis.

2. Junior Tennis Camp -- a concentrated tennis program for ages 6-18. Classes are designed so that each player receives indidividual attention, based on his/her natural style of play. Each student is encouraged to reach his/her greatest potential by participating in competitive drills designed to teach students to react instinctively to the ball. Participants may register for part three of the program, Tennis Match Play, at no cost.

3. Tennis Match Play (USA Team Tennis) -- for kids ages 6-18 who have had some introduction to tennis and are becoming comfortable with full-court match play, as well as the more advanced players. FUN-damentals, fair and equal play, appropriate grouping, and positive coaching will be emphasized.

For more information on any of these programs, contact Jeff or Grace at 585 334-8897 or by e-mail at wagwoo@rochester.rr.com.
