What you might not know about FAC: Our APEX Junior Tennis Program is a fabulous way for kids to learn the game of tennis as young as 4 years old. Our Pro staff includes nationally ranked Division I Tennis Players/Teaching Pro’s. In this program, juniors play with color coded tennis balls. Each ball has been designed to bounce at the proper height for children to learn the game of tennis quickly. Each ball color also corresponds to a different court size. As the youth players become stronger, they graduate to smaller/dense balls and larger court sizes. We have many children that start in our tennis program and are able to volley the ball within a few group lessons. Many of our APEX players have earned scholarships and are now playing at the college/university level.

What a local mom says about Fayetteville Athletic Club: “I’ve been going to the club for several years now, and I absolutely love this place! The pool is never overcrowded, the instructors are incredibly motivational, the cafe is perfect for the on-the-go person, and the Kids Factory is an absolute lifesaver. I would totally recommend the club to anyone of any fitness level to join!” — Brandy January of Springdale.
