Duey Evans created Midcourt Tennis Academy nearly 20 years ago while coaching in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Now,
he's brought his Academy, programs, teaching philosophies, passion and ability for developing great players to
the Dallas-Forth Worth area and Samuell Grand Tennis Center.

Midcourt Tennis Academy consists of three different levels of youth tennis programs, Advantage, Academy and T.O.P.S,
which provide a clear, well thought-out and proven pathway for youth tennis players and their parents.
We never lose sight of the facts: each player's journey is unique and our job is to provide the best coaching
and training possible within an exceptional learning environment in order to generate accelerated growth during
each player's journey to becoming the kind of tennis player they want to be.

If you have tried the program for kids under 10 that tells you the balls, court and racquet to use based on age
are what matter most and it's left you thinking there must be something more; there is. And now you've found it.
We take those elements and incorporate them into our overall strategy of teaching technique within
a tactical framework for developing successful tennis players.

We'd love to see your child advance into our T.O.P.S program, which is the Ivy League of High-Performance
Junior Tennis programs for kids chosing the conventional path for their tennis development.
But, no matter the path or the level of tennis a child wants to play, we know our various levels of programs
will get your child where they want to be as a tennis player much better prepared!

           10 & UNDER 
    TENNIS PROGRAMS

We give kids an 'advantage' in learning to play tennis with the coaching philosophy we use in our Advantage R-O-G programs. All Advantage classes for our 2012-2013 school year programs kick off the week of August 27.

Advantage Red is for kids ages 5 
to 8 (5 year olds must go through Tots Tennis and graduate into Advantage Red per coach's recommendation).

Advantage Orange is for 8 year olds who have completed various levels of power bands as well as 9  and 10 year olds. 
 

Enrollment for all Advantage classes is monthly, with payment due on the first of each month. However, you may enroll your child at any time during the month as long as there is space available in the class. Advantage classes are held Monday through Thursday, as well as Saturday mornings. The only classes held on Friday are those cancelled due to weather.

Parents get to choose how many days and which days of the week (per availability) they want to enroll their child in the age- appropriate class. Participants in each class will be divided based on ability per a coach evaluation. It is important to understand that a child's ability to be successful in their quest to learn how to play tennis means group lessons should be done in conjunction with private lessons. Parents need to keep the number 3 in mind when it comes to tennis because that's the minimum number of times needed on court per week for someone to make consistent progress. That three can be any combination of classes, private lessons, organized competition, or playing with family or friends.



Advantage Red is specifically designed for kids ages 5-8. We make tennis, and our classes,
F-U-N by using 'kid centric' terminology to engage and entertain kids while learning how to play tennis and developing a strong foundation for becoming life-long players.

Advantage Red classes are held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 4-5 pm. The Saturday class is held from 10-11 am. Kids in these classes use age/size appropriate racquets, foam or red lower-compression balls and play on courts no bigger than 36x18 feet.


Advantage Performance is specifically designed for kids who are 8 (who have completed specific power bands) 9 and 10 year olds. These classes are held from 5-6 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  The Saturday class is held from 11-Noon. Kids in these classes use age/size appropriate racquets, orange lower-compression balls and play on courts no larger than 60X21 feet. 

Advantage Class Pricing:
   1 day per wk = $59 per month
   2 days per wk = $89 per month
   3 days per wk = $129 per month
   4 days per wk = $159 per month

*There is a one-time registration fee of $25 for each participant in any of our Advantage classes.



     COMPETITIVE-LEVEL 
        JUNIOR TENNIS 
           PROGRAM

Our Academy program for the 2012-2013 school year kicks off the week of August 27.  Academy is for juniors consistently competing on orange-level, green-level, and full-size yellow courts. With the changes in rules now in place for teaching tennis to juniors, smaller courts and lower compression balls provide an enormous developmental opportunity to teach players to become tactically astute before they are fully developed technically.

The expectation level is higher for players in our Academy program.  Coach Duey Evans
developed his coaching philosopy and systematic approach called Tournament Optimal Performance System and designed it specifically for competitive-level junior players. T.O.P.S is incorporated into our Academy.

More than 70% of program time is spent in live-ball drills (versus standing in a line waiting for someone to feed balls) that teach, build and reinforce good tactics and techniques.

Academy is held Monday through Thursday from 5-6:30 pm.  Enrollment for Academy is monthly, however you may enroll your child at any time.
Payment is due on the first of each month.

Academy Pricing: $325 per month


There is a one-time registration fee of $25. Academy participants will also be required to wear Midcourt Tennis Academy performance shirts/shorts which can purchased through our pro
shop.

or full-compression yellow balls.
