‘Iolani Summer Tennis School

Session I June 11 - 29
Session II July 2 - July 20

Welcome to the 'Iolani tennis school where students of all ages and skill levels learn to play “the sport for a lifetime” in a fun and nurturing environment. The many benefits tennis provides include the physical and psychological development of the student where challenges engage the body and mind. Perseverance, problem solving, and learning to work with others are traits formed through the process.

The 'Iolani tennis classes are part of a developmental pathway where students matriculate from one skill level to the next as they make progress. Group class offerings range from Kindergarten through the Upper school where the size of the court, racket, and ball are age and skill appropriate. We have adopted the USTA “10 and under tennis” format where the play area and rackets start off small for younger students and progressively increase in size as students age up.

The tennis programs have been established with four phases, taking in to account the age and experience of each student. Each phase will focus on technical fundamentals, patterns of play, and match/ game play appropriate for the skill level. The phases are as followed .

  1. Beginner – Advanced Beginner (0-2 years experience, grades 1-9)
  2. Advanced Beginner – Intermediate (2 –3 years experience, grades 4-5)
  3. Intermediate – Advanced Intermediate (3+ years experience, grades 6 – 11)
  4. Advanced (state and nationally ranked, grades 9 – 12)
