Whether you’re a beginner or advanced player, join us Tuesday evenings to learn and improve your tennis skills!

Beginners will learn the basics of the game; Intermediate students will receive more advanced tactical instruction as appropriate to each individual’s skill level.  Emphasis is placed on fundamentals and approaches to ensure your early success and confidence in playing, while also allowing for individual understanding for future self-correction of common errors/frustrations.  You will gain a knowledge of equipment, tactics, and approaches to play that encourages your present and future enjoyment of competition, including volleying, groundstrokes, and overheads. Tennis rackets will be provided for beginners if needed.
