Tiger Tennis Programs

Tiger Tennis was started in 2002 for kids in our Carmel of 4 families that wanted to learn the sport of tennis, other families from our neighborhood joined in and as the kids got older many wanted to start a team. I had played tennis in college and became certified by the USTA as a teaching pro and as home school mom wanted my daughters to have a sport to play with Christian sportsmanship and to have an attitude of determination. We teach our lessons and techniques with these attitudes in mind.

We began with a Middle school team in 2007 playing Park Tudor, Heritage, Orchard, the International School and Traders Point Christian. That summer we started adding club matches  In 2010 we added high school matches. Tiger became the official League Coordinator of the United States Tennis Association Junior Team Tennis Midwest. In 2015 Tiger Tennis expanded to Cincinnati starting the first home school tennis Team in Cincinnati (where I grew up) starting Tennis teams in the Greater Cincinnati Area in spring of 2015. Tiger Tennis now has 300 kids that played in 67 matches in 2014 and continue to grow in the ability on leadership and determination, pressing on and pushing through defeat and victory learning good sportsmanship and keeping their goals.

All of our programs are Christian tennis programs based on the Word of God, building up and encouraging our participants in God’s word, pray fully encouraging them to grow in God’s plan for their life.  Our mission is to encourage all of our students age 4-19 in our Lord to press for His excellence in all things. We offer clinics and lessons and tournament matches for all ages.

In 2008 we added ladies clinics with bible studies and fellowship and prayer as we learn tennis for beginners – competitive players leaning tennis and playing in matches.

In 2009 we began our family clinics my parents learned to play tennis when we kids learned and it was the most blessed time together all my life.

I have hired coaches from Indiana Wesleyan, Anderson and Taylor to come along side our kids and teach them how to be young men and women of God while under difficult circumstances.

We had lessons with Renee, we highly recommend her

 

 Renee,

I wanted to write you a thank you for all that you do with our class.  I love your class!  I look so forward to going that I get up on class days with a smile on my face and am raring to go.  You are so unlike former teachers with whom I've worked. To be honest, the classes were overcrowded in the past, and it seemed like too much material was covered in too little time.  Moving on to the next lesson was quite quick, even at the expense of learning how to do the basics.  Not so in your class.  You are so knowledgeable, funny, and enthusiastic.  You make the class fun, energetic, and challenging.  I just LOVE your classes!  I wake up on class days with a smile on my face and excited to be going that day.  You do a fabulous job, and I for one, really appreciate your positive, thorough teaching approach.  Diane Ryan teacher 36 years

 

“Renee my kids love you classes you are such a great teacher. You have really taught my kids how to play tennis, to paint and draw thank you” Sue Stieman Carmel

My kids all three have learned to play the guitar and sing from Renee, they now all lead worship at our church and at College we are so thankful to Renee for making this possible Bet Moore Carmel

“I love the variety of the class I like the way you think. I hope there is room for me. I did ask within an hour of your post, if that matters. If there is no room for me this time, for any reason, please keep me on a waiting list for the next opportunity! Bless you, and keep up these wonderful classes. 😎💜” Victoria Zionsville, Indiana

“I love the way you teach my kids not only have they lerned how to play tennis and to  do water color they come home and paint all 3 of them have learned to love painting and are painting all the time” Vicky Grinner Noblesville

“Hi I have been a single mom for 10 years and have never been able to take a water color class, I bought my self a water color set 10 years ago but have never been able to use them, I am so excited to be taking your class, and God is so good” Susan Stiemen Fishers, Indiana

 

“The paintings and you ladies are awesome!  Renee you're so good!  You're positive and loving energy is infectious!  You're a delight!” Joie Mader, Woodland Green

Our greatest desire is to have a sports club whose members will be able to work harmoniously together, and with that end in mind, we have established the following standards of behavior that will be enforced. Our mission is to encourage young men and women in our Lord to press for His excellence in all things: We believe in discipline and determination an attitude of not giving up, digging in and pressing through, players are rewarded for their attitude and effort, their ability to listen and learn. We hope to build up and prove and to build strong individuals in Christ. We believe kids learn to play tennis by playing matches no matter what their level of play, by learning where to stand, strategy, placement of the ball, along with basic stroke instruction kids stick with the game because it is fun to play with kids their own level.

 About Platform Tennis

Platform Tennis is an American racquet sport enjoyed by thousands of people of all

 ages. It is the only racquet sport that players can enjoy outdoors in cold weather.

 This unique appeal attracts people who desire fresh air, competition, and social

engagement - all on a chilly winter's day or night.

The sport is played at private clubs, public facilities, and in 
backyards at both highly

competitive and purely recreational levels. Because it is easy to learn, it is enjoyed by

players as young as eight and as old as old bones allow.

 

 

The Court: The game is played on an aluminum deck about 1/3 the size of a tennis court and is surrounded by a 12' high superstructure with taut, 16-gauge "chicken wire" fencing which allows play off the walls, as in racquetball and squash.

Platform tennis was invented in 1928 in Scarsdale, New York, USA by James Cogswell and Fessenden Blanchard. The primary difference from paddle tennis is that the platform tennis court is 6 feet shorter, fenced by taut chicken wire off which the ball can be played.

 

 Renee Bognar Instructor  - “I started playing this sport when I was 7 with my family and it is my favorite sport I am still playing at age 59 and I just love being out in the fresh air I have played in tournaments and taught this sport for 40 years”317-667-3605
