Thursday Meetup for Beginner Tennis Players

This Meetup is open to all people who are new to tennis and want to learn this wonderful sport. Anyone with a skill level of 0.0 (knows absolutely nothing about tennis) up through 3.0 (knows a little but wants to learn more) is welcome to attend this Meetup.  If you are an advanced tennis player (3.0 and up), please check out our Tuesday Advanced Meetup or our Friday Special Meetup.

The atmosphere that we will strive for is:

•  Relaxed and friendly

•  Fun and enjoyable

•  "No pressure" self paced learning

For more information on tennis player skill ratings, go to 'Pages' on this site and then select 'Tennis Player Ratings'.

    This Event Host's thoughts on the evening:

    Once again, I'm honored and thankful to have Gary and Sandy's help with this group. Thank you both for your kindness, patience, and support.

    I enjoyed my time with Jeal, Lavonne, Jana, and Sara, as we worked on forehand and backhand strokes. Thank you Sandy for also working with this group as they practiced serving.

    I also enjoyed playing a set with Tammy, Denise, and Terry. I didn't realize score keeping could be so much fun. Thank you Sandy for the time you spent with this group and for letting me rotate in.

    I had fully intended to hang out with the fun loving group of Gary, Yokki, Vivian, and Kate. Unfortunately, time got away from me... so the secret of why this group laughs so much... will remain with them for this week ;-)

    Sieg's Weekly Tennis Quiz

    A (serve) receiver can state that they were not ready after returning a serve.
    True or False?

    The answer to last week's quiz is: 'C'.

    Thank you Terry, Denise, Yokki, Kate, Tammy, Lavonne, and Jeal, for taking last week's quiz!

    • Sieg D.

      The answer is 'False'. If the receiver returns the serve, he or she forfeits the right to say they were not ready. So the point is... if you're 'not ready', don't return the serve. Better yet, hold your hand up or turn your back to the server, to make clear that you're not ready.

    • Lavonne L.

      Yay! I was correct :)

      2 · April 11

  • Sieg D.

    Thank you Vivian and Sara for your gift. That was very "sweet" of you!

    April 11

  • Tammy O.

    False? I'm guessing the answer is no, they returned the serve.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
