Tennis, Quickstart (Ages 7-8 and Ages 9-11) Register View Cart

In cooperation with Reading Recreation, Tennis Professional, Gregg Luongo, rejoins our summer team. Gregg has been a Professional Tennis Instructor for 32 years. He is a certified member of the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), and played as the #1 singles player for Reading Memorial High School and the University of New Hampshire. Currently, Gregg is a Tennis Pro at Bass River Tennis Club in Beverly.  This program is a great way to get introduced to tennis and/or to build upon existing skills at all levels.  A session consists of 5 group lessons Monday through Friday.

Please remember that we are very flexible with making up missed classes.  Cancellations due to rain can be made up throughout the summer during weeks not attended.  All make-ups are scheduled directly with Gregg Luongo.

The Quickstart Tennis Program (Ages 7-8 and Ages 9-11) is for children who are ready to learn and develop basic fundamentals of forehands, backhands, serves and volleys for practice drills and skill games.  Players at the higher level will be developing skills in rallying, control and point play.  Parents are asked to place children respective to their ability. If a child is misplaced, he/she may be switched. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Gregg Luongo at rectennisgregg@gmail.com.

Special Notes in regard to COVID-19:

Arrival: Parents and students will not exit the car until class time to limit contact. Parents and students must exit the cars with masks on. We will have designated areas on the tennis court for the students to place their water bottles, bags, and other personal items. This will be their rest area and each spot will be more than 6 feet apart. Once they reach their designated area they can take off their mask. Parents must wear masks while watching unless sitting in their cars or maintaining social distancing.
 

Class:  We will be using courts 1 and 4. There will be no more than 4 students per tennis court with a maximum of 8 students per class. All students will have dots marking where on the court they should stand for either waiting or hitting. Drills will have two players on each side of the net to make it easier to stay socially distanced. Teaching staff will pick up all the balls to limit touching anything besides their own property. During this time students will go to their designated area for a water break. Staff will all have masks at all times to put on if for any reason they need to close inside of the 6 foot social distancing. There will be sanitizer to be used throughout the class for staff and students to sanitize.
 
Departure:  When class ends students will gather their items and put on their masks as will staff. On the way out we will have all students and staff sanitize. Parents and students will be asked to leave immediately so the next class can exit their cars at class start time 10 minutes later.
