Junior Tennis and Academy
Creig Matthieson is the St Ives Director of Tennis. His mission for the St Ives Country Club Junior Program is to provide each player with the tools he/she needs to fully enjoy the game of tennis for a lifetime!
Tennis gives a child confidence, builds his/her character, provides an excellent source of exercise, and is fun to play. The teaching concept that he has instilled upon the teaching staff at St Ives Country Club is based on the fact that every child learns differently and has his/her own “style”. Each junior in our program is encouraged to be creative and to develop his/her own style without sacrificing the fundamentals.
Our Head Pro/Junior Coordinator, Stuart Marcus, and Staff Professional Davis Dawson, have brought forth new enthusiasm to our Junior Program. The Junior Program runs year round with ALTA in the spring and fall and USTA in the summer and winter. Our tennis clinics run year round along with our summer camps.Contact Our Team
