We plan on having an Adult Tennis Clinic on Sunday, June 4th. Time is 8:30-10:30am.

PLEASE NOTE: These weekly clinics have moved outside to the tennis courts in Pirozzolo Park in West Elmira. If you need directions, please let me know. Cost of these clinics is $15 for the two hour session while outside.

Also, if you are on Facebook, please go out an "like" the Marshall Tennis Academy page. I put information on this page that you may find useful in improving your level of play and other tennis information that I think is interesting.

See you at the courts!

Hello everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying your Spring and getting ready for a Summer full of tennis. I wanted to reach out to you all to inform you that we will now be taking registration for this Summer's GETA singles ladder. Things will be a little different then last Summer as we will be offering multiple ladders. Here is what we will offer

A Men's Singles (players moving up to a 4.0 and higher)
B Men's Singles (Players 3.5 or lower)

The aim of making multiple ladders is to expand playing and more matches among players of similar level.

Secondly we will be using an online system to run the ladders. When you register please send me the following information and I will guide you to registering online. Here is the information I will need.
