Focus will be on footwork and sending and receiving skills to help players develop consistency with forehand and backhand ground strokes. Players will learn and practice serve and volley through a variety of racquet and ball activities. Prerequisite: Ability to rally with a partner using red balls. (This is the former Tennis 101 class.)
Green Ballers (Ages 9-12): This class is for kids with prior sports experience who are getting ready to enter age appropriate competition. Players should be able to maintain a ground stroke rally over the net. Players will develop a more complete game with attention to the volley and serve. (This is the former Tennis 201 class.)
Teen Tennis (Ages 13+): Put all of your strokes and footwork together to further strengthen your skills--and practice strategies to help you be successful on the court. Teens will enjoy competitive play while forming new friendships for tennis matches outside of the class!
