JUNIOR MATCH PLAY
Junior Match Play is an important part of a tennis player’s development and understanding of the game. Match Play allows juniors to put to use the techniques and strategies they are learning during tennis clinics and private lessons at Beechmont Racquet & Fitness.  Match Play also allows players to experience “on the court” learning, in which they will better understand the purpose for technical elements that they are being taught during clinics and private lessons.

When: Saturdays 5:00-6:30 pm beginning October 7 (Brent will adjust this time occasionally as courts are available and will send out the time in the weekly e-mail.)

Cost: $18 per week (Only sign up for the weeks that work for your schedule!)

Brent Johnson sends out an e-mail each week to see who is interested for the upcoming Saturday. For more info or to be added to Brent’s e-mail list, contact him at  513-478-9174 or use the email form at the bottom of this page.

Junior Match Play is meant to be a low pressure introduction into a more formal match play setting.  Getting a taste of some nerves, learning how your body reacts, training your mind, and important decision making are just a few things that a serious tennis player must master to move up levels.  Match play helps deliver these aspects.” -Brent Johnson

A testimonial from one of our tennis parents:

My kids and I love the group Brent is running…A format like the one you all currently have is very family friendly without too much pressure on the kids…We stay and watch and go out to dinner afterwards and it becomes a family event. I think the program you have at Beechmont is absolutely terrific!” -Lisa C.
