Smaller in size with two courts and 15-16 players maximum and double the learning and positive vibes.  My experienced and trained instructors are very much engaged and the kids get to know and enjoy each other.  We run them around a lot, do great varieties of games, contests, drills and competitions, and learn excellent tennis mechanics and techniques.  We also take breaks some days for players to decide between:  soccer, frisbee and football on the side field; or, board games on the grass in the shade; or, playing more tennis.  On Wednesdays we do a brief, positive discussion about good sportsmanship, trying your best, and other success factors in life.  We are diligent about safety and adhere to COVID-related precautions and guidelines.  Kids have a blast and come home tired.

Winslow Tennis Academy Players Grabbing Spots on High School Varsity Tennis Teams

We’re delighted to announce that seven (7) long-time members of the Winslow Tennis Academy’s junior development program, mostly 15-year old Freshman, last week made their respective high school varsity tennis teams.  More than half of these players had to make it through tryouts and cuts.  Big congratulations to Celian, Yanir and Sasha at Berkeley High; Cole and Jack at El Cerrito High; Nathan at St. Mary’s; and Shinghan at Albany High. 

In addition, another six (6) academy graduates are returning members of their high school varsity tennis teams for their second or third years, with a slew of victories under their belts from the previous season’s team matches and tournaments — Congratulations to juniors Briana (Salesian College Prep), Cheyenne and Jayden (El Cerrito High), and Jack (Berkeley High), and sophomores Leighton (Berkeley High) and Nahele (Albany High).

This totals 13 Winslow Tennis Academy active or graduate members currently playing high school varsity tennis in the Berkeley-Albany-El Cerrito-Richmond region, including three starters on the Berkeley High Boys team.  All 13 of these bright, young players follow the academy’s credo, “We have fun while getting after it.”

Health and Safety Guidelines

 Tennis is a great sport and we’re fortunate to be able to play and teach during these coronavirus-limiting times.  During our lessons we maintain social distancing and no physical contact between player and coach, apply hand sanitizer before and after the lesson, and we keep our balls separate from players on the next court.  We adhere to no sharing of rackets, drinks, towels, equipment, and no social congregating outside the courts before or after the lesson.   Do bring your own cold beverage, towel, and sunscreen when you play tennis!

Alexander Winslow, owner, Winslow Tennis Academy; long-time USTPA-certified teaching professional and team coach; member, Wilson Gold Staff Advisory Program; former nationally ranked junior player and starting member, San Jose State University varsity men’s tennis team.

Berkeley- and El Cerrito-based Winslow Tennis Academy is for players of all ages and levels. We have fun while getting after it.  Coach Alexander develops young kids, older kids, beginners, high school varsity and tournament players, and has an active junior development program and junior team.  I also delight in working with adults, whether those learning for the first time, rediscovering their games, playing social doubles, or competing in U.S.T.A. league matches.   I teach excellent mechanics, footwork and shot-making techniques; keep players moving, drilling and having fun; and strengthen players’ quickness and conditioning.  With advanced competitive players, we also work on point tactics, shot selection, match strategies and management, and mental approaches; I help them win more points and become more confident competitors.
