To the Badon Tennis Academy

Improve your serve, your game strategy, and get into better shape. All while having a great time!  Founded in 2002 by Veronica Badon, Badon Tennis Academy is based in one of the most picturesque areas in Southern California. We help tennis enthusiasts of all levels get even better and deepen their love for the game. 


From Mighty Munchkins, to Teens, Adults and Pros 

Lessons for kids

We welcome all levels. Young kids can start in our year-round, weekly Mighty Munchkins class. We also offer classes 2-3 times a week for Junior Beginner and Intermediate classes for kids with some experience who want to move to the next level. All classes are small enough for kids to get a lot of individual attention while learning in a fun group setting. 

Teens & Adult Classes

For experienced teens and adults who have experience and just want to get even better. Focus on strategy, get a great cardio workout and plenty of specific tips on technique so that you can keep on getting better! 

Private Lessons Available

We offer private, one-on-one lessons throughout the entire year. Work with Veronica Badon or one of our other highly experienced coaches. Improve your existing skills, master a new technique, and deepen your love for the game. Learn how to avoid injuries and how to play safely. 


Work with the most experienced and caring coaches

Do you want to serve better? Learn how to avoid injuries? Get ready for a major tournament? Or just learn how to play tennis?

Veronica Badon and Gerald Sawyer are some of the most sought-after tennis coaches in the area.

We take players of all levels – complete beginners to aspiring professionals – and help them reach the next level, whatever that maybe. Badon Tennis Academy has taught hundreds of players at our facility in Loma Alta Park, Altadena, California, for 17 years. 

With our low coach-to-player ratio, we give everyone a lot of individual attention within a small group setting so that they can thrive.

Last Summer our daughter improved her tennis more in one week with Veronica Badon than in 3 weeks at another camp in South Pasadena. So this summer and for many more, it’s 100% at Badon Tennis.
