Safety Guidelines

All athletes are not the same. Body types, mindsets, and skill sets are all different, therefore teaching and training needs individualization to be fully effective. We do not create robots, but individuals with unique expertise. Our tested training system maximizes development across a broad spectrum of styles and strengths. However, all players need to develop the skills to play on all parts of the court in order to capitalize on the opportunities their personal style will create. Tennis teaches many valuable life lessons which serve to make young players who are not just champions on the court, but champions in life. We develop young people for whom the development of tennis skills is concurrent with learning confidence and humility, integrity and responsibility, and personal pride and discipline. These are trained as equal elements in creating the whole athlete.

Program Description:

RippnerTennis has a complete array of classes that range from a young student having their very first tennis experience, all the way to the nationally ranked junior exploring their collegiate tennis options. Our educational philosophy highlights the importance of allowing students to learn the sport through first-hand experiences and learning a strong technical foundation in a fun and nurturing environment.  Over the past 15 years, we have seen our classes benefit our students in many ways including increased health, character building, increased resiliency, sportsmanship and most of all having FUN.  Tennis is truly a sport for life that makes a positive impact in the lives of our youth.
