Tennis Lessons

Introductory lessons for our younger players. Our focus is to train to adopt a solid foundation in every area. In this phase we use high volume and low intensity. We are developing muscular and cardiovascular endurance. Emphasis is on mechanics in every area. Players will be playing games and learning to compete in a fun atmosphere.

In the 7-10 age group we will continue to develop mechanics in every area. Emphasis will be on maintaining rhythm, depth of shot, height over the net, fluidity and build their confidence. Players will also learn how to maintain rallies to help build their rhythm and tempo to maintain ball control. Intensity will move to high volume with medium intensity. We will be playing points and practice matches using strategy, tactics and patterns of play.

In the 11-16 age group we will continue to develop mechanics in every area. Emphasis will be on maintaining rhythm, depth of shot, height over the net, fluidity and build their confidence. Players will start to do more live ball hitting with emphasis on successful patterns of play. They will learn serve and return patterns as well. Intensity will increase to medium volume to high intensity.  Students will be playing point and practice matches increasing the use of strategy, tactics and successful patterns.

We have low key morning women’s clinics which are a lot of fun. No experience necessary..
