"Let's Play" Tennis at Delcastle Tennis Center


USTA Delaware District Let's Play Program at Delcastle Tennis Center


Let’s Play is a program run by volunteers from the USTA Delaware District to give entry level players, or returning players from the age of 9 though adult, the opportunity to play indoors, similar levels, in a structured format.  Our goal is to guide players on the court by hitting quality tennis balls.  The volunteers are not tennis pros, so they are not teaching technique.  They are using transitional tennis balls so players can become more successful, sooner, due to the balls slower speed and lower bounce. When you are ready to move onto regular tennis balls, and professional instruction, feel free to leave our program (we have then succeeded in our goal!).


Beginning Saturday, January 5, the program will be structured as noted below

  • There will be only 2 Saturday sessions:  January 5 and 12
  • Tuesday, Thursday and Friday sessions will start January 8 and run through the end of March
  • Adult sessions:  $12/person
  • Kid’s sessions:  $9/person
  • Cash, check or credit card accepted on day of session (checks payable to USTA DD)


Session may be canceled

  • 3 players will need to be signed up for each session in order for that session to take place
  • If 2 or less players are signed up 48 hours prior to the session, that session will be canceled and the player will be notified by email
  • Please be sure to double check your session sign up the day of your play to make sure your session is taking place


Remember to wear all court shoes (not running shoes) and tennis racquets will be provided if you do not have one.
