Welcome to the Arizona Tennis Association lesson program. Founded in 1988 the A.T.A. has instructed over 100,000 students. A.T.A. students have developed from beginners to state high school champions. Many A.T.A. students compete on high school teams and have gone on to play college tennis.  This program offers the best way to learn tennis in a positive, fun and rewarding environment.  A.T.A. instructors are experts at teaching beginners and instilling lifelong tennis skills.

   The A.T.A. tennis lessons are offered in 8 week sessions.  One hour per week, for 8 weeks, in a row.

Classes are taught in a group format, with an 8:1 student to teacher ratio, many Instructors have an Assistant to help them on the court.   Parents are welcome to watch, and pick up balls, too!
     Classes provided by age groups, in East valley, we contract with C.U.S.D. to offer classes to 5 to 8 year olds, Ages 9 & up Beginners, and Advanced Beginners for teens.  Students can be graduated UP a level when specific tennis skills are accomplished.  We offer a tennis skill assessment in Week #7, for those students in the Ages 9 & Up level to see if the student is ready to graduate Up to the Advanced Beginner level class.
     A different tennis stroke is introduced each week, and tennis games reinforce learning, building knowledge weekly, with a lot of review, and repetition. 
     Lesson programs run September - May.  (4) eight week sessions, Fall I, Fall 2, Winter & Spring.
     Those students ready to progress beyond the Advanced Beginner level, and are interested in competing on their high school tennis teams may be assessed, and will be invited to enroll in the ATA ACADEMY.   Junior Varsity, and Varsity level classes are offered twice a week, for 1.5 hours each day, on Tuesday's and Thursday's at the JW Marriott at Desert Ridge Resort.
