See You On the Court

Looking to brush up your skills or continue building your skill set? All skill levels can enjoy the Courts Plus courts. Courts Plus has been recognized as one of the most active tennis facilities in the Fargo/Moorhead area. A well-qualified staff or U.S.P.T.A. and U.S.P.T.R. professionals are able to offer a wide tournament, and leagues.

THE CHANGEOVER

The Tennis Staff is excited for the indoor season to begin with our new direct lighting and the US Open blue and green court surface.  The reason for the changes: to provide energy reduction, increase the light quality, and improving the optical and playing surface for you the player.  The courts will also include the USTA approved 36’ and 60’ (QuickStart) lines within the same color family as the interior court. Please let us know what you think of the changes, hopefully you’ll see your game in a whole new light!

Star Tennis and Maximum Performance (MXP) Tennis Academy

Courts Plus offers two separate junior academy programs. Click on the link below for our PDF of our 2017 Spring Program flyer to find out more about these two programs.  Whether your child is just starting the game or is trying to make a local school team, we have lessons designed to take them to the next level. Our Star Junior Tennis and MXP Tennis program uses a progressive court system that uses 36’, 60’ and 78’  (regular size) tennis court. Coupled with ensuring the proper racquet length and using different types of tennis balls based on age and ability, our goal is to get your child playing tennis as soon as possible. This system gives your child a visible progression to maximize their improvement. Each of our lessons will be divided up into three critical phases beginning with a warm-up emphasizing tennis specific movement and coordination. This is followed by a skill-building phase. Then, skills are practiced “live” in a competitive phase, where rallying and game conditions are experienced.
