Learn How to Play Tennis

Even if you’ve never played a game of tennis in your entire life, you can still enjoy tennis in OCNJ. Adults can sign up for a tennis court clinic session though Ocean City Recreation and learn all about tennis, from the terminology used during the game to the proper way to hold a racket and hit a ball. We even offer private instruction for children tailored to different age groups and skill levels so they can learn at their own pace. It’s never too early or too late to learn a new mentally and physically engaging skill like tennis.

Family Fun

If you and your family already know how to play tennis or just want to bat the ball around a bit on a tennis court, you can sign up for court time to have a little bit of family fun playing Ocean City, NJ tennis together. You may even meet another family here with a similar skill level to your own and choose to challenge them to a tennis battle. Remember: The family that plays together stays together. If your family or group of friends is large enough, you can even rent out tennis courts and host your own group tournaments to determine once and for all who the true champions are.
