"Let's Play" tennis program is back!



Let's Play Delaware

Let’s Play is a Program run by USTA Delaware District staff and volunteers at Delcastle Tennis Center to give entry level and returning players from ages 9 through adult the opportunity to play indoors, at a reasonable cost, with similar levels, in a fun “Play to Learn” format. The program uses appropriate level transition balls to ensure player success due to the slower speed and lower bounce. Our sessions are not geared to teach technique, but to give each participant a chance to hit lots of quality tennis balls.

So join in on the fun and come out to Let’s Play!
