At Bentonville Parks and Recreation, we offer 3 Tennis programs along with private lessons. BPR offers Youth Recreational Tennis, Adult Recreational Tennis, and Youth Academy Tennis!

Youth Recreational Tennis

This program includes beginner and intermediate players divided into the age groups (6-8) (9-11). This program focuses more on instruction and point play. The program also includes QuickStart Tennis: a fun way for 10U players to learn and progress faster. It uses shorter courts, lower compression balls, and smaller rackets.

Adult Recreational Tennis

This program is reserved for participants 18+. This includes players of similar levels and will allow players to learn and improve their overall game in a fun group setting!

Youth Academy

This program is for tournament level players looking for higher-level drills and lessons. These drills put emphasis on advanced technique, commitment, fitness, accountability, and self-discipline. We offer 5 different groups in this program:

Red (ages 5-7) uses 25% compression balls and looks for players to be able to hit 100 consecutive balls and execute topspin.

Orange (ages 8-10) uses 50% compression balls on a 60’ court. Players may move up to Orange Crush by coaches’ decision.

Crush (ages 8-10) 50% compression balls on 60’ court. Look for players to hit 100 consecutive balls from the 60’ baseline and execute topspin.

White (ages 11+) for intermediate tournament players.

Black (ages 11+) for advanced tournament players. (Most often players traveling across the state, south, and/or country for tournaments.
