The Academy

The OKC Tennis Center has recently assembled a new team of top-level USPTA Teaching Professionals to run the OKC Tennis Center Academy. We are proud to announce that we have the most experienced group of coaches in all of Oklahoma City. Together, the Academy has compiled a total of 41 National Titles, 250 Missouri Valley Titles, and countless state championships.

The program is designed for the junior player who aspires to take his or her tennis career beyond the level of recreation. Players are required to commit to extensive training standards and highly structured drill formats year round. Coaches stress the importance of player's attendance, effort, and attitude in order for success. At the top levels, Academy players understand the tournament system and are frequently traveling to compete in USTA events.

Starting as early as 5 years old, players are taken through our development program where we instill our core values and follow the USTA guides for youth progression. Similar to other youth sports such as T-ball and soccer, USTA uses different levels of balls, rackets, and courts which allows juniors to learn the fundamentals while also playing in a fun environment. The OKC Tennis Center is one of the few facilities in the region that offers all youth sized courts.

Class information is below. For more information or questions about our Academy program, please speak with any of our six teaching professionals.
