QuickStart Tennis for Young Players

Mission Inn Resort & Club has implemented the USTA’s QuickStart Tennis Program. A long staple of European instruction, QuickStart Tennis has caught on in the United States and Justine Henin cites QuickStart Tennis as “a key to her development as a young player”.

QuickStart Tennis is an exciting new play format that is designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing specialized equipment, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring – all tailored to age and size. It is divided into two different levels: ages 8 and under and ages 10 and under. QuickStart Tennis clinics are offered Saturdays, from 1 – 2pm.

After school Tennis Clinics are also a great way to learn the fundamentals and have fun with friends. The Tennis on Target clinic at Mission Inn Resort & Club focuses on players ages 18 and over and is designed to improve your shot accuracy and reduce unforced errors. Doubles clinics are also held every Monday and Friday evening.


Clinic reservations must be received a minimum of 24 hours in advance. To book a lesson or to make a reservation for a clinic, contact Cesar Villarroel, Director of Tennis & Fitness at 352.455.6815.
