Adult Group Tennis Classes
Two additional Adult Group Tennis class categories will be added to our schedule this year. Intro-to-Tennis and Cardio Tennis.
Intro-to-Tennis is a class for absolute beginners who need to establish the foundations of the game at a comfortable pace without feeling pressured. This class is a great way to grasp the technical aspects of the swings, court positioning, and game rules.
Cardio Tennis is a fast paced exercise class with a tennis focus. The goal of this program is for students of all levels to burn calories and practice high intensity tennis.
In addition to these two new programs, we will be offering Beginner Tennis classes, Intermediate Tennis classes, and Advanced Tennis classes.

Getting back into the ”Swing” of Tennis
Many of us are forced to take time off from playing tennis for a number of reasons: Injury, work, or because it’s Winter time.
After a little hiatus from playing our reaction time, instinct, and speed are some of the things that may be affected. Here are 5 tips that will help you prepare to play again:
1: Stick to the basics – You don’t need to play fancy points to win a match at first. If you stick to the fundamentals, you will hit a lot more tennis balls and keep the majority of them between the lines.
2: Play opponents with less experience – Doing this will help you build up your confidence and will allow you more time to hit the ball and make adjustments if needed.
3: Practice – “Practice makes Perfect”. It is always a great idea to hit with a partner, hit using a ball machine or hit against a wall which can be your best partner before playing a match.
4: Be Patient – We can all get frustrated but the more you focus on bettering the timing of your strokes, the less you will feel frustrated and the more satisfied you will feel.
5. Visualize – Take some time to imagine yourself playing with excellence. See yourself as a calm and agile player who knows how to succeed at the game.
