Youth Programs

BATA OUTDOOR fall lesson programs are held at Chapel Hill Park in Deer Park.

BATA uses the USTA's 10 & Under tennis format for its youth beginner and advanced beginner classes.  10 & Under is tennis sized right for age and ability. The format scales the court down to the child’s appropriate size and uses slower bouncing balls to make learning easier and more fun. 

A limited number of scholarships are available for BATA programs. Please contact marybeth@barringtontennis.com for scholarship information.
