OUR BBT TENNIS PROGRAM features six courts; four of our premier courts are illuminated for evening play. We offer FREE LESSONS with BBT membership for both adults and youth. All skill levels are welcome.
Tennis courts 1-4 are reserved for Adult Lessons on Tuesday evenings from 6:30p to 8:30pm from May 25th through July and on Wednesday evenings from 715-915pm for League play May-September.
Tennis court 1 is reserved for Pickleball use on Monday evenings 6:30-9:30 during the pool season.
Tennis courts are available for use by the members during the off season until 10 pm. The tennis entrance gate will be locked. Please remember to bring your key, turn off the lights and make sure the gate locks behind you when you are finished playing. If you’d like to purchase a court key or need a replacement key, please send an email to the board. We ask that all members please take care of the facility and use it responsibly. Also, off season anything carried in must be taken out. Do not leave any trash, including used tennis balls on the courts.
Tennis court use is for tennis play only. Skateboards, basketballs, scooters, or other game play will not be permitted.
LOOKING FOR PRIVATE LESSONS? For youth tennis, adult tennis and adult pickleball, lessons can be arranged with our Coaches.
BBT YOUTH TENNIS PROGRAM
Tennis is a sport that gets kids moving, improves balance, agility and hand-eye coordination, and can teach self-confidence and self-assurance.
Our 2021 Youth Tennis Program is headed by Coach Kevin O’Campos Barry. Kevin is a Bowie native and grew up playing tennis at Belair Bath and Tennis. Kevin played locally at Bowie High School and continued to play tennis competitively while attending college at UMBC. His tennis instructor experience began at BBT where he taught youth lessons from 2009 through 2015. In 2015, he was introduced to ProsToYou Tennis at their camp in Bethesda at Seven Locks Swim and Tennis Club. During 2016, he worked with ProsToYou Tennis, beginning with private lessons for children and adults in the early months and then camps during the spring and summer months both at Avenel Swim and Tennis as well as Seven Locks. Kevin has his professional certification in coaching youth ages 10 years old and under.
Belair Bath & Tennis provides free youth tennis lessons as part of your pool membership. Come join the fun!
QUICKSTART TENNIS METHOD FOR KIDS
BBT Youth Tennis instructs using the QuickStart method which is a new format to help children learn and play the game of tennis. With QuickStart Tennis, It’s Easier Than Ever To Get In The Game.
- Your child will enjoy playing with balls that bounce lower and move slower through the air, making them easier to hit.
- Racquets are sized for small hands, making them easier to grip and swing.
- Courts are smaller, so kids can cover them and have more success when they play.
- Kids have more fun—and want to play more often.
- Your child can make new friends in a safe, supportive environment.

YOUTH TENNIS TEAM
At BBT, our youth tennis team is for kids with a love for tennis to come and hone their skills further. As opposed to lessons, we focus our instruction on building off of a base skill set that is already in place to further refine technique. Most summers we will have matches against other neighborhood pools, due to COVID this may not be the case this year. Tennis team is a fun experience which gives players extra tennis while also placing them in competitive scenarios amongst each other.
