About Our Programs
NJTL of Bennington is committed to providing tennis and academic programming for our area youth. During the health crisis we’ve added equipment, supplies and protocols to protect the health and safety of Bennington ACES’ staff and students.
“I could stay here all day and just look at kids my age. I didn’t know how much I missed them and I’m not sure I even know how to have a conversation anymore.”
“I really like coming here because I like seeing kids my age and tennis is really fun.”
One mother exclaimed that her son spends so much time on games that she’s glad he’s getting good exercise and is having fun, leaving his electronics at home. She commented, “He’s 10 and can get a little mouthy so the social skills he’s learning and exercise he’s getting learning a new sport makes me happy.”
