Lessons, leagues and tournaments are offered on a regular basis for those wanting organized activities. For players not wanting a structured activity, many courts are open for reservations.

Registration

Reservations

Court reservations may be made in person or by telephone at (972941-7170, option 5) between 9 a.m. and closing, Monday through Sunday. A person may have only one reservation at a time (you must finish your first reservation before a second reservation can be made).

Instruction

Teen-Adult classes have a minimum of six students and a maximum of ten students per class. Youth classes have a maximum of eight students. To avoid cancellation of a class, a class may “make” with less than six students, but with a reduced number of sessions. Classes at the same level and similar age groups may be combined at the discretion of High Point staff. Any group of two or more players may schedule a special class by contacting High Point staff at 972-941-7170. Group lessons are very popular and some classes fill very quickly. To assure a continuous chain of instruction, it is recommended that students enroll for multiple sessions at the time of initial registration. For example, a student should enroll for a Beginner session in the first session, an Advanced Beginner I group in the second session, and an Advanced Beginner II group in the third session.

Tennis registration may be completed by using internet, in-person or by telephone starting Saturday, March 3. Please see “How to Register” information for detailed instructions.

Hours of Operation

QuickStart Tennis

RESIDENTS

High Point participates year round in the QuickStart Tennis play format, a national program designed to help children learn, rally, and play quickly. Using shorter and lighter racquets, balls that are easy to keep in play, and court dimensions tailored to smaller players, youngsters from ages 5-10 pick up the game very quickly. In short time, young players are able to keep the ball in play and play points just like older and more experienced players. In time, as students’ games improve and as they mature physically, they move to traditional rackets, balls, and courts. QuickStart is a great way to introduce children to the great game of tennis!

Youth (l7 & under) -- $2.00 per person per session Adult (l8 & up) -- $2.50 per person per session

Advancement from Course to Course

Monday thru Sunday -- *7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. *Tennis Center opens at 9 a.m. from October 1 thru March 31. The tennis center may close early due to inclement weather and/ or lack of court demand.

Court Fees

NON-RESIDENTS Youth (l7 & under) -- $2.75 per person per session Adult (l8 & up) ---- $3.50 per person per session

Annual Passes Annual passes may be purchased which allow the holder to play without paying further per session court fees. Cost of the annual passes are: Resident Non-Resident Family $215 $325 Adult (l8 & up) $125 $190 Youth (l7 & under) $70 $110

972-941-7250

Players are encouraged to continue learning and playing through progressively more challenging courses. The goal is to have students playing tennis (in some form) as soon as possible. As a player improves, more course time is spent on point-play like situations. For children, the instructional/play sequence is: Beginner or Pee Wee I lessons (depending on age of child), Advanced Beginner or Pee Wee II lessons, and Future Stars or Pre Junior Development (Play and Instructional Programs), Competitive and Elite Junior Development. For Teens, the sequence is Beginner, Advanced Beginner I, Advanced Beginner II, Learn N Play, Future Stars, Competitive and Elite Junior Development. For Adults, the sequence is: Beginner, Advanced Beginner, Learn and Play, High Point intra-facility leagues, Tennis Competitor of Dallas leagues and USTA Adult Leagues.

PLANO STAGES Plano’s Stages, a division of Plano Parks and Recreation, is committed to providing the community with opportunities to enjoy quality music, dance, theatre, and cultural events at any of our three publically owned and operated performance venues: the Courtyard Theater, the Amphitheater at Oak Point Park, and the Cox Building Playhouse. The Courtyard Theater, recipiant of the Greater Dallas Planning Council’s 2007 Urban Design Award, was the first gymnasium built for the Plano School District. In 2001, the gymnasium was converted into the steller, 325-capacity theater we know and love today. The Amphitheater at Oak Point Park, a beautiful, 1,200-capacity bowl-style venue, is tucked deep into the heart of Plano’s 800-acre Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve. The “Plano Amp,” as it is locally known, houses major concerts, cultural festivals and speical events of all kinds. The Amp’s picturesque and open-air setting makes it an ideal location to enjoy an evening of entertainment. The Cox Building Playhouse, a 90-capacity black-box style space, is a versitile, state-of-the-art venue used by local performers and touring acts, special performances and meeting. Calendars for all three venues can be found at www.planostages.com. Each one of these handsome and well-maintained spaces is available for rent by the general public, non-profit organizations and corporate groups. Form more information, please call 972-941-5611.
