Adult Tennis Classes

The YMCA believes tennis is a game for life! Tennis provides great health benefits by improving bone density and increasing cardiovascular fitness levels.

The YMCA offers tennis instruction to all ages and level of players, from new players to those who have been playing for years. Tennis classes run all year round with our outdoor and indoor tennis courts at both Portage and Maple Branches.
