All classes and lessons are taught by certified tennis professionals, many of whom played in college or have been on the professional tennis circuit.
The XS Summer Camps for local youth and high performance tennis players run every day from 9am to 4pm from June through August with before and after care available. XS Summer Camps are held outdoors at the Lake Meadows Tennis Center and indoors at XS Tennis.
XSTEF offers free tutoring and homework support to XS players from pre-K through 12th grade from 4pm-7pm Monday through Thursday during the academic year, September through May. Support is provided by the University of Chicago Civic Knowledge project.
Through the free Tennis XSpress program, XSTEF brings rackets, tennis balls, and portable nets into CPS gymnasiums for in-school beginner tennis programs taught by XS tennis professionals.
