Reffkin Tennis Center loads a busy weekend with three events for players of all ages! Slip on your Nikes, pick up your racquet, and join us for a trio of tennis tournaments!

For the kids still green on the courts, we have the Quickstart Tennis tournament for beginners. Any rookie ages 4-12 will love this introduction tournament that teaches tennis at an easy pace. All you need are simple rally skills and a basic understanding of tennis rules- we'll show you the rest! Kids will rally with an underhand serve, play on reduced court dimensions for a child-sized ratio, and will get a chance to use Reffkin's innovative "slower" transition balls that speed success and boost confidence! Everyone starts somewhere, and you'll be pressed to find a smoother  introduction and transition to competition than here at the Reffkin Center.
