Welcome to The Yellow Ball

While tennis is at the core of our programs, we also emphasize various physical education elements to develop children’s coordination, fine motor skills, movement, agility, endurance, speed and strength. Our programs also stress the value of teamwork and the importance of integrity, self-discipline, accountability and respect.

Other key elements of our curriculum include:

  • Instilling knowledge and understanding of athletic rules, concepts, and strategies
  • Teaching children how to work as part of a team and as individuals by using a wide variety of competitive activities
  • Empowering children to take leadership roles and learning complex scoring mechanisms
  • Teaching children about proper nutrition and maintaining a healthy lifestyle



Both my son and daughter have loved The Yellow Ball! The instructors bring so much positive energy to the court and always find fun and exciting ways of teaching the game of tennis. We’re always looking forward to our weekend tennis fun!”.
