Benefits of Tennis

Tennis keeps both your mind and body sharp by making sure you’re on your toes literally and figuratively. While your brain determines where to tactically aim the ball, your body follows through with sweeping arm movements to improve your range of motion and powerful leaps to tone your lower half.

Adult Tennis Programs

The JCC’s Larman Tennis Center offers both indoor and outdoor courts. Our program strives to meet the needs of all players by offering group classes, private lessons, match play, individual court rentals, and special tennis events.

Group Classes

Group classes at the JCC are one of our most popular offerings. There are class options for men and women of all ability levels.

Non-members are welcome in all group classes at the non-member rate.

Most groups meet weekly for 90 minutes.

Classes are divided into sessions (i.e. – fall, winter, spring, summer).

  • Total session rates are based on the number of weeks per session, which can vary based on JCC closings and other scheduled breaks. The breakdown for each 90-minute Adult class is $29 / $23 JCC Members.
  • Classes must be paid in full by the class start date.
  • Registration fees will not be refunded after the first class.

  • The JCC uses USTA National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) level numbers and offers classes for levels 2.0 to 5.0.
  • JCC professionals reserve the right to move players between groups based on ability if necessary.
  • Participants in a current session get a priority registration period for the next session before open registration begins.
  • To register, please use our online registration tool.
  • If you are unsure if you are registered for the correct session, please contact Kim Shippy, Director of Racquet Sports at
