Junior Program 

Bloomfield Tennis & Fitness offers a variety of tennis opportunities for the junior player with classes ranging from beginner to the USTA nationally ranked tournament player. Our first goal is to provide the best instructional programming opportunities while creating a fun-filled atmosphere.  Our second goal is to teach the etiquette, integrity, and sportsmanship of the game.
If a tennis professional decides your child’s level is not ready for a particular class, they may be required to take private lessons to develop their skill level. Once those skills are met, the tennis professional will place them in the appropriate class. Please be aware your child will be expected to have the appropriate skill level regardless of their age.
