Welcome to Good News Tennis Ministries

 “Try It Out Red Ball Tournament”.

This is where your child can discover their unique tennis talents. Kids love to play and compete They will enjoy exploring and showing off their skills.

  • All they need to start are “tackies” (running or tennis or informal).

  • We provide racquets for 4 to 8-year-old children.

  • Smaller courts and racquets and lower nets together with the slower special red balls make it easy to start enjoying tennis from a very young age.

  • Every first Saturday of each month an experienced “play and stay coach” will supervise a red ball tournament at the Lynnwood Glen Tennis courts (close to Menlyn).
