Tennis Lessons

Tennis is a great opportunity to both have fun and get some exercise! This popular sport is all about agility and strength, and our classes teach you how to harness your body and maintain focus. Classes are available for all ages, so you can brush up on your skills while your kids learn how to hold a racquet and hit the ball for the first time. Glen Ellyn Park District does not operate an indoor tennis facility. For information on our outdoor tennis courts, please click here »

Look for classes in the Spring, Summer, and Autumn Playbooks
