Looking for Someone to Play With?

Tennis anyone?

Tennis in the Parks is as much about fun and friends as it is fitness and finesse.  In cooperation with park and recreation departments, the BCTA provides affordable tennis, with an accent on fun, at various public park tennis courts throughout Bucks County.  BCTA participants enjoy learning and playing tennis in a relaxed and social atmosphere with other like-minded individuals.  You don't even need equipment since the BCTA provides loaner racquets as well as tennis balls and instructional aids.  To locate a BCTA program near you, click here.

INTRODUCTORY BCTA JR. TEAM TENNIS

Tuesdays are BCTA Jr. Team Tennis night in Bucks County!  Low-key, age- and skill- appropriate competition as well as team fun make this program perfect for participants who have previously been involved in BCTA’s Learn, Practice & Play programs and players on middle and high school teams.  This co-ed program adopts the “learn- by-playing” model common in other youth sports.  A one-hour practice is held each week at a pre-determined site either 5:30–6:30 pm or 6:30–7:30 pm.  The specific time slot is determined when players are assigned to a team.

Age categories:

  • Little Aces (recommended ages 8–10) (36-foot court)

ADVANCED BCTA JR. TEAM TENNIS TRAINING

This advanced training program, which requires a BCTA or high school coach recommendation, is ideal for teens who are playing on their high school team or in the Saturday spring USTA Jr. Team Tennis Program!  Players practice at 90 minutes once a week at a pre-determined site.  Co-ed travel teams consist of 6 to 8 players each (18-and-under and 14-and-under) to play home and away matches on Saturday afternoons (Note: away matches will be played at other sites in Bucks County.)
