Practice for beginners

I'm gonna try to focus on a specific shot each session, I think it makes more sense. Let's continue with the next thing on the list: your backhand ground stroke. Join us and hit a couple hundred balls.

Remember, the best way to get better and go up on your NTRP level is to practice, a lot. Join, our beginner or playground sessions, invite other beginners to play or hit on a wall, but get out there, I guarantee it'll get more and more fun that way :)

Oh, and be ready to sweat a little :D

P.S. you know these sessions are completely free, but let's start getting rid of a few dead balls. So, your entrance fee this time is a can of balls, sounds good?

    Was checking and hoping periodically throughout the day that a spot would open up. Didn't get the notification in time but would love to attend the next one! How often do you have Practice for beginners?

    We hope to see everybody out there today, but remember that if it's too cold or late for you or for some reason you can't make it, to please change your rsvp to "no" so another player can attend. Thanks!

    Jorge, there are 6 people waiting-should I just suggest a practice camp at another location for the wait list people?

    Okay Jorge, should I give up my spot----I'm really excited about coming, but I'm a true beginner and dont even have a forehand yet, to speak of, can I work on that?

      True beginners are more than welcome; the purpose of these sessions is to get more experience and feel more comfortable when you're actually out there playing a real match, with scores, ... pressure... killer instinct and trying to win the bet :)

    That's right, even when you're going to be running and doing pushups, pullups and squats, layer up!

    Please advise folks that the weather forecast calls for a high of 49 degrees on Monday, the coldest day during the next seven.

    So it may be in the mid-40s around practice time. Dress appropriately!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
