On your first day of instruction, you will be grouped with three other comparably skilled guests and assigned a professional instructor. Your instructor will implement a lesson plan complete with drills, games and real match play tailored to the skill level of the group and its goals. Our instructors will not force you to change your game, but design their lessons to improve what you already have in your arsenal.
At the beginner level guests will focus on the fundamentals of tennis. Instructors will teach players basic stokes such as forehand, backhand, volley, lob and overhead; while incorporating drills for movement, quickness, positioning and conditioning. Lessons will also include basic strategy for match play in singles and doubles. Drills and games are designed so guests practice each fundamental, stroke and strategy.
In addition to solidifying all the fundamentals of basic strokes, intermediate players will learn to hit forcing approach shots, spin serves, winning volleys and overheads. Consistency and keeping the ball in play are key components of an intermediate’s improvement.
Our advanced players work on finesse, touch and power while smoothing the rough edges of their game. You’ll learn a kick serve and topspin lob. These players also focus on preparation for match play and advanced strategy.
