Get to Know Us
Becoming a better athlete in any sport is all about being fearless. You’ve heard it– “just do it, just go for it, believe in yourself.” And yet, you don’t break through–We're talking all in, all the time– to that place. “If only I had just hit that ball, poached that shot, cracked that serve in, fired that return back.” We hear it all the time. “I would have won that point…game…set…match.” It all adds up. If only, if only. That’s fear talking. At AYTE, you leave the fear at the door. Belief talks here. We want you to hit all out. No holding back. This is the place to do it. Enough already. Start strong. Stay strong. No doubt, no fear, just pure belief. Become the player you’ve always wanted to be. We’ve designed TAPP to be an all-encompassing Tennis And Pickleball Program to make you a fitter, faster, stronger and more powerful tennis/pickleball player, both physically and mentally. It is unique, fun, fast-paced and challenging. We've incorporated a dynamic and exhilarating approach to coaching these sports. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an advanced match player, there’s a program that will make you better. All we ask is that you bring passion for the game, and a willingness to work hard to improve.
Adult Group Lessons
We offer Group Lessons year-round for Adults of any experience level. It’s a great opportunity for athletes to boost their performance, with measurable improvements during each session. See for yourself why Group Lessons is always sold out. Group classes are a great way to learn the game and further your skills. It is also fun and a great way to work out.
Lessons for Youths
It’s a whole new ballgame for kids tennis! With equipment and courts tailored to suit their needs and abilities, kids will feel confident as soon as they pick up a racquet. Using the QuickStart Tennis format allows kids to rally back and forth over the net right away and enjoy the game right from the start. You’d never send your 8-year-old out with adult-sized equipment to a full-sized baseball field or basketball court, so why do that on a tennis court? In a decision that will fundamentally change the future landscape of tennis in the United States, the USTA has passed new rules governing competition for 10-and-under tennis tournaments. The new rules require that 10-and-under tournaments be played using slower-moving and lower-bouncing balls, on smaller courts and utilizing shorter, lighter racquets. This move follows the International Tennis Federation’s proposed rule change, and took effect on January 1, 2012. It applies to all USTA-sanctioned events for children 10 and under. In order to take the necessary steps to prepare your child for success, we have carefully designed our program to reflect the revolutionary changes that is taking place. Through a strategic mix of theoretical lessons and practical sessions, class participants become comfortable with the game both on and off the field. If you’re interested in introducing this lifetime sport to your child, the Junior Program at AYTE is for you.
We are extremely proud of our professional staff here at AYTE. We believe them to be not only the finest collection of teaching pros in Southern California, but one of the best overall groups of instructors in the entire country.

In 2015, we expanded our program to include pickleball! We also have recently added our Exclusive Mobile Service where our instructors come to you. If you own a tennis court, we will bring the game to you! Schedule a class today.
