Who We Are

First Serve Tennis is a locally owned and operated company. We specialize in offering tennis lessons to children between the ages 5 - 17. Since we opened in July 2007 we have done artist in residency programs for local schools in Calgary with tremendous reviews. Our Artist in Residency Programs will be a great addition to any physical education program.

Tennis as Part of the Curriculum

  • The sport of tennis fulfills a number of the requirements for physical education as mandated by the government of Alberta. The part of the curriculum that tennis satisfies best is the Basic Manipulative Skills component. Students develop both reception and projections skills while learning to use an implement. Tennis is also a life-long sport that offers the unique ability for students to play in both an individual sport (singles) and a team sport (doubles).
  • First Serve Tennis can easily accommodate up to 50 students in a small gym while actively engaging every child. All of our coaches are skilled at handling large numbers of students and we provide all equipment including racquets, balls, and fold out nets.


First Serve Tennis uses portable, fold out nets that measure 16.5 feet wide. Our soft, low compression balls ensure an appropriate pace and safe environment for learning. First Serve Tennis also supplies quality racquets of various sizes for all the children to use.
