Tennis Program 2017


The CBSC Tennis Committee and Coaches are excited to offer a summer program of Progressive Tennis lessons, fun tennis activities and club tournaments for players of all ages and skill levels.

Returning CBSC Head Coach Steve Moore is a Tennis Canada Club Pro 2 and has been coaching for the past 12 years. He has extensive experience running tennis camps including the UBC Tennis Centre Camps, and the Surrey Parks and Rec program, in addition to coaching at the Arbutus Club in Vancouver. All CBSC coaches have their Tennis Canada Level 1 coach certification and range from one to five years of experience coaching.

WHAT IS PROGRESSIVE TENNIS?  Progressive Tennis introduces the sport of tennis in a fun and interactive way and ensures immediate success for young players. Using modified tennis balls, racquets, nets and courts, young players are properly equipped to enjoy rallies and learn the fundamentals of the game early on. Skills are developed much quicker, allowing for an easy transition to full court tennis. Tennis Canada fully endorses Progressive Tennis.
