"TENNIS FUN AT ANY AGE!"
Little Aces Tennis was founded by former WTA touring pro Debbie Graham Shaffer and her husband Clint. Debbie played tennis at Stanford University and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007. In 1990 she won the NCAA singles championship. She graduated from Stanford and then went on to play on the WTA professional tour for ten years. She reached a career high singles ranking of #28, and doubles ranking of #9. For the last 7 years Debbie has been a USTA National Tennis Coach.
Debbie has worked with top pros, juniors, and players as young as three years old. While working at the USTA Debbie assisted with the development of young tennis players. She helped implement and introduce young players to the USTA Quick Start program.
Friends of Debbie's kept asking her where do they start their child playing tennis and know they are learning correctly. Because she did not have an answer to this question Debbie decided to take matters into her own hands. Debbie has two little girls and has found there is a need for this program in Orange County so all kids can be introduced to tennis in a fun and exciting way!
"Learning a skill like tennis for a life time is an invaluable tool for all young children!"
Little Aces Tennis was founded in order to give young kids an opportunity to be exposed to tennis and general physical exercise. At Little Aces Tennis we believe physical exercise and activity is essential to becoming a well rounded individual. Tennis is such a great sport to learn as a youngster because you can play it your entire life! At Little Aces Tennis we hope that we are introducing your child to a life time skill that they will love!
