Genesis' Junior Tennis Academy isn't just for the pros, it's for every kid who loves meeting friends and having fun.
The Junior Tennis Academy teaches children between the ages of 3 and 18 with the skills necessary to become a good tennis player and a good team player.
Genesis offers children the best facility and staff in the area with indoor and outdoor courts and certified tennis pros. So whether it's teaching a beginner how to hold a racket or going one-on-one with an advanced player, Genesis can help improve every aspiring tennis star's game.
Each program allows players to develop the skills necessary to succeed in tennis in addition to developing other life skills. Self-discipline, assertiveness and good sportsmanship are just a few of the skills that children will learn.
In order to participate in the Junior Tennis Academy, you must be a member of Genesis. However, guests who do not need access to the fitness facility may purchase a Junior Tennis Only membership.
A series of tennis lesson clinics for kids have been scheduled for four weeks scheduled in June and July. Genesis teaching professionals and staff will teach tennis basics to youngsters ranging in age 6 to 15 for several hours per day. The opening week of play will feature learning stroke and game fundamentals for kids, who will for the first time hold a racquet and play on an indoor court. Clinics will take place at Rock Road, West Central and Salina locations. Kids can register by filling out the attached form and returning it to any of the three participating Genesis Health Clubs.

GFFT (pronounced “gift”) is an acronym that stands for Genesis Foundation for Fitness & Tennis, a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) foundation formed in 2006 by Genesis Health Clubs. Though Genesis is the creator of GFFT, the Foundation is guided by an independent, volunteer Board of Directors from all sectors of the community.
GFFT was founded on the premise that physical activity improves quality of life, and when begun at an early age, physical activity offers healthy habits that may result in lifelong benefits in health and well-being.For more information on becoming a member of GFFT or to donate to their cause go to www.genesisfoundationwichita.com .
