ORYA’s Tennis program hopes to introduce young athletes to this fun and life-long sport. Small classes or camps offered in the fall, spring and summer offer players the chance to learn the sport and develop some of the basic skills needed to play for fun or prepare them for more intense training.


ORYA is currently seeking a Tennis Program Coach/Coordinator. This person(s) would be responsible for working with ORYA to create a program schedule and coach within their availability. Program logistics such as training dates, times, length of sessions are largely up to the coach while ORYA staff will manage program advertisement, registrations, payments, etc.

If you are, or know of someone, that is interested please contact Jim O’Hara at
