ACES: Academic Community Engagement Support
Bennington ACES, part of the USTA Foundation NJTL network, is dedicated to providing tennis and academic opportunities for Bennington area underserved youth. Through its partnership with local schools, Bennington ACES offers high quality, age-specific tennis instruction; academic tutoring; and in-depth nutrition programming.
Students in the Bennington area may take part in after-school programs that include tennis and instruction. Programs are fun and emphasize sportsmanship, character building, positive attitude, healthy behavior, and extreme effort. STEAM activity based instruction keeps students on task. On court, tennis coaches run game-based group tennis for players at all levels.
Using the USTA youth developmental levels, Bennington Aces offers youth tournaments for those who want to expand their tennis play. Red ball, orange ball, and green dot ball tournaments are geared toward developing players.
