Commonpoint Queens began offering a robust year-round tennis program in Spring 2021. At a time when many children had been isolated for over a year in the pandemic, families turned to our tennis programs as a safe outlet to be physically active and socialize with other children outdoors. With Coach Dwayne’s guidance and instruction, the children learned the basics of the game, sharpened their skills, and practiced good sportsmanship.
“I’ve been teaching tennis since I was thirteen and would teach three-year-olds in exchange for my own lessons. And I still look forward to teaching every day—I love starting with beginners and helping them build a foundation. It’s amazing to see the students that started only last year improve and grow. I want all of my students to have fun but also learn the proper technique. In the future, I hope to see some of my students play competitive tennis and show that an after-school program like this can breed competitive athletes!” Coach Dwayne Jolly shared.
Beyond tennis, Commonpoint Queens now offers baseball training in the new batting cages at the Tanenbaum Family Pool, flag football, and fitness and agility training for children.
