Drills are what we call practice and instruction sessions.  Generally speaking, our club holds drills on most Sunday afternoons from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.  The drill schedule can be downloaded by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.

Juniors should be prepared with the following items:

  • tennis or court shoes (smooth soled, not knobby like running shoes)
  • tennis racket
  • water
  • sun screen

The format for week day activities is Match Play.  Match Play includes participants playing match-type games.

Players need to be able to serve, maintain a baseline to baseline rally, and keep score.  If your child is able to do ALL three things, encourage them to participate in Match Play.   Please note that Match Play time is 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Tennis Stadium.


We will be holding Orange Ball/Green Dot Match Play Days (round robin format) at our Sunday drills from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. at Waiakea High School.  All junior players at the Orange Ball/Green Dot level are invited to play.  The cost is $5.00 for non-members, but is free for members.  Non-members must sign a waiver of liability form and have at least one parent/guardian present.  Please have exact change and USTA# available if you would like your child's participation to be reported to the Hawaii Pacific Section.  See the 2017 Drill calendar for dates.
