Getting Results

We encourage players who are interested in improving their game and competing in league play to take lessons twice a week. Tennis is a game of repetition. More time on the court builds the confidence and skills that will make tennis an enjoyable and life long sport for your youngster.

Inclement Weather

In case of rain or inclement weather, call the SSTC front desk at 404-303-6182. Cancellations are posted one hour prior to the start of lessons. Make ups are given for inclement weather only.

Enrollment

Participants are grouped by ability and age. If enrollment does not reach the minimum of four participants per group, SSTC reserves the right to cancel the time slot and either refund the fee or move the junior to a different day and time.
