Course Description

Youth Tennis Clinics: Level 1

The tennis clinics offer participants a 3-session introduction to tennis. This clinic focuses on developing quick tennis strokes and mechanics while also learning to love physical education.

No previous experience is required. These are Level 1 clinics; participants will use the lightest and softest tennis ball and a junior-sized net in order to develop tennis skills.

The clinic is for youth in Grades 1-6. Participants are grouped by age and/or tennis skill level.

Participants are welcome to bring their own racquet. If the student brings their own racquet, these guidelines are recommended:

  • Ages 6-8 should play with a 23-inch racquet
  • Ages 8-10 are best suited to a 25-inch racquet
  • Ages 9-11 should be playing with a 26-inch racquet

Sessions 1 and 2 will be held at the Hamel Recreation Center, 5 Edgewood Rd., Durham NH

Sessions 3 will be held at the UNH Outdoor Tennis Courts, adjacent to the UNH Field House, 145 Main St., Durham NH

Additional information regarding program drop off and pick up will be sent via email from the Campus Recreation staff the day before the session begins.

Campus Recreation does not offer refunds for tennis lessons, including missed sessions.

Online Registration Instructions: please review before enrolling for the best outcome. Family Accounts are recommended for enrolling multiple children from one family in any UNH Youth Program. If you already have an account in our system, you will be asked to log into either a Family or Student Account. Be sure you know which type of account you have and know your username and password. We recommend you attempt to log into the Student or Family account before enrollment opens as this will minimize difficulty and time while enrolling. Email youth.programs@unh.edu if you require assistance recovering your account information. Do not create a new account if you have one already.

If you don't have an account already, you can set up an account at any time, even before you begin the registration process. When you create a new account, the email address provided in the profile should be that of a parent/legal guardian, not the participating student.


CampDoc: UNH has partnered with CampDoc to quicken the enrollment process. Enrollments and payments will still be done here through our current enrollment system, but no registration questions will be required at that time. Within a few days of enrolling, the email provided in the Student/Family Account will receive an email prompting completion of the registration questions.

Due to very brief timelines between enrollment and the program start date, it is important that a parent/guardian respond to the CampDoc email and complete the registration questions promptly. Families who enrolled a child through our current enrollment system in 2023 will already have a CampDoc account. A parent/guardian will need to log into the student’s account and complete any necessary questions for this program. A participant’s CampDoc profile must be 100% complete before they can attend the program.

For more information, review our “CampDoc” page.

UNH Campus Recreation also offers Level 2 tennis clinics, for youth with some tennis experience: Tennis Level 2
