Play Golf and Tennis GROUP TENNIS CLASS (Beginners and to break 2.0, 3.0 or 4.0 + faults & fixes)

Tennis classes start on the hour and last for one hour or, you may use an extra class and stay for 2 hours if, but sign up for BOTH session before the class. We have 2 courts in tennis, on for players under 2.0 and the second court is for more advanced players only. 2-4 per court and no overflow, so come to play.

We have 15 minute lesson time and most play time so expect to sweat and play the entire time. We do not believe in academy style teaching, we believe in learning to play the game, not hit a ball standing still, so also expect to MOVE YUR FEET, a lot. J

The class format is geared toward learning to PLAY the game, not just hit a ball. If you are a beginner, we start with tennis warm-up, ready tennis, the basics, grips, proper footwork, forehands, backhands and work our way up from there.

If you are more experienced, we will work on a few basics, but introduce new shots, server\return serve, improve your current game, and work on all court tennis – baseline, approach and net shorts and\or, customize you lesson.


If you RSVP and do not show up, it WILL count. However, I send out reminders via the meetup the day before, so please confirm. The meetup group tracks your classes, and once you have finished, we will remove you, but give you the opportunity to upgrade to a CLUB MEMBERSHIP.

If there is any type of weather advisory, classes may be canceled so please check your email or the meetup group BEFORE coming out. If I do cancel a class, it will be done the night before – by 11 pm.

If you have a Groupon or Voucher, please bring a copy of it our have it on your phone to redeem it.

Please dress according the weather – bring water, a sweater if need be, suntan lotion, a snack, etc. (whatever you need)

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you in class soon.
