Family Programs

The Admirals Cove tennis program includes dynamic and fun programs for younger children eager to learn how to play the game, as well as programs geared for older youth players who are interested in further developing their game. Our instructors are specifically trained to work with children and teens to make learning the game of tennis fun and engaging.

Youth Program

This very popular six-week program is offered four times per year to our Admirals Cove residents’ children and their friends. Younger children are grouped by their ability levels instead of age, and each group is limited to six students, to maximize the development of their skills and create the most rewarding experience. A "kickoff party" starts each session to determine each child’s level.

Junior Holiday Clinic

In this annual clinic, children are grouped according to level and ability, with a Student/Professional staff ratio of 5:1. All five major strokes are reviewed in a fun-filled, high energy environment where games and special equipment keep things exciting and fun, while stressing solid fundamentals.

CARDIO WORKOUT

We hold a weekly Cardio Workout on Wednesdays at 10 AM designed to get your heart rate up in a fun and competitive way and it’s all done to music! This is a member favorite. Come on out and give it a try! Get ready to sweat and have a blast at the same time.

PICKLEBALL




Picklball is a paddle sport played with a whiffle ball on a badminton-sized court and a tennis-style net. A non-volley zone (or kitchen) prevents volleys close to the net, and the serving team cannot volley the return of serve. These unique rules favor players with less mobility and allow senior players to compete successfully with younger competitors.

Pickleball is enjoyed by people of all ages and athletic abilities thanks to its ease of play and straightforward rules. The sport is inexpensive, social and healthy, and has been widely accepted in school gyms, fire stations, community centers, local parks, athletic clubs and thousands of backyard sports courts. In some ways it’s a combination of tennis and badminton, and along with sports such as table tennis and racquetball, pickleball has exploded in popularity. Thousands of pickleball courts have been built in recent years, especially in senior communities.

These areas have benefited from increased comradery amid peers since both doubles and singles can be played. Doubles involve longer rallies, lower physical demands and more opportunities for court banter. Though easy to learn, pickleball provides endless opportunity for individual improvement and learning subtle techniques. Many players who initially dismiss the sport as amateurish, simplistic or noisy now find it addicting. Like golf, many fans play several hours a day either indoors or outdoors.

Pickleball’s requirements are fairly minimal when it comes to equipment. Paddle faces are made of wood, composites or graphite. Overall, paddles are roughly 8” wide and 15” long with hard, smooth surfaces. Balls are made of hard plastic with holes and are similar in size to baseballs. Nets are 34” high in the center. Courts are 20 feet wide and 40’ long. Four pickleball courts can fit in the same area used for a single tennis court.
