Fall Registration is ONGOING! Fall Semester starts Tuesday Sept 21
Building Character and Community by Serving the Peninsula through Quality Tennis Instruction with an Emphasis on Small
To Grow the Game of Tennis and Provide Players of All Abilities the Highest Quality Tennis Program
in the Bay Area
Thank you to The Carey School, Burlingame Intermediate School,
and all the players and tennis families for another great year!
We love coaching The Carey School's after-school program, and the BIS boys and girls middle school teams!
Thank you for the opportunity to "serve" you and your families!
Wishing our staff and players continued success!
Welcome to Peninsula Tennis Academy, the Bay area's premier tennis instruction academy, offering dynamic classes for all ages and skill levels in the Burlingame, Hillsborough, San Mateo, Millbrae, San Bruno, and South San Francisco areas.
We specialize in offering small group lessons, with a limited number of players on the court, in order to provide maximum individualized instruction time.
Using a cooperative coaching philosophy, we communicate with players and parents to set realistic goals, make decisions together and discuss technical aspects of the player's game as we work on skill development, strategy and tactics through a games based, situational approach.
We also serve players who need more specialized attention during lessons. Players who are differently-abled, have autism, ADHD, or who just need a little more specialized attention due to focus or family issues
are encouraged to join.
We follow the USTA recommended method of teaching, which means that we use lower nets, smaller courts and lower compression balls for players
age 10 and under.
Because young players don’t run as fast as older athletes, a smaller court size makes the game more manageable. Using low compression balls means a lower and slower bounce, which results in more hits and scoring opportunities.
The overall effect is a much faster learning curve and greater love of the game.
We acknowledge and reward progression of skills,
and we work with parents and players to make
tournament plans, if players want to test their game in a more competitive environment.

Players enjoyed practicing their sportsmanship and tennis skills in a fun and friendly environment during our most recent semi-annual Fall Red Ball Tournament.
The tournament gave our young athletes an opportunity to play in a slightly more competitive environment than weekly lessons provide.
Players enjoyed playing hard, getting sweaty, and earning their trophies.
In order to keep the focus on friendly competition and sports and life skills, instead of trophies for Most Matches Won, trophies were awarded for Most Effort, Most Encouraging, Most Adaptable, Best Communicator, Kindest, Most Enthusiasm
and Best Strategy.
Come see us in action at Ray Park or Washington Park in Burlingame- feel free to watch a lesson and even join in! Check our calendar above for class days and times (please call ahead of time so that we can confirm that the class you are interested in previewing is meeting that week).
New classes are always forming, so if you don't see a class day and time that works for your schedule, contact us and we'll start a new class!
Let us help you host a tennis birthday party this year!
We bring the equipment, coaches, and prizes- you bring the cake and guests!
