Elftennis is a portable tennis school!
ElfTennis is a portable tennis school. ElfTennis offers tennis lessons tailored for kids in the NYC area. We use appropriate games and drills. We conduct tennis clinics in gyms, church and synagogue basements. We use smaller nets and foam balls to make the game easier for younger children. We firmly believe in the four Fs: fun, fitness, friendship, and fundamentals of tennis.
