Welcome to Saint Johns Tennis Academy located at Mills Field Saint Johns Parks and Recreation. Our program has now adopted the new USTA national standard of 10 & Under Tennis, an exciting new play format for kids. This format will enable your child to practice and play real tennis to scale and allows them to play and learn at the same time. Your child will learn footwork, proper stroke technique and grips for ground stroke, volley, serve and keep scoring no matter what level of play in all of our classes! We practice conditioning and stretching with our students and encourage good sportsmanship and proper court ettiquette. All our instructors are certified instructors/professionals thru the Professional Tennis Registry and USPTR.
We have available team play through the USTA JTT/NFPTA Team Tennis Challenges. Ages 6-18 can learn the competitive side of tennis and create a team in order to play other kids in the Jacksonville area once a month. We also guide you as parents and players to participate in appropriate levels of local tennis tournament play when your child is ready to compete and take their tennis to a new level OR just keep it fun!
We offer ladies league play through the First Coast Tennis Association which practices and competes yearly September - May. We currently field 6 ladies FCTA teams; 2 - A2 teams, 2 - B1 teams, 1 - C1 team and 1 - C2 team.
Most of all we are here to have fun and teach your child the love of tennis through our own passion in the sport of tennis.
Sincerely our staff Heather Diegan, Patrick Diegan, Estella DePaula and Cheryl Keller at St. Johns Tennis Academy
