Youth Tough ~Love~ Tennis Meetup! /Open for private hour

Price listed would be inclusive either for you or you and up to 3 additional players of your choice.

This is a weekly Thursday afternoon meetup for up to three who would like to learn to play tennis with confidence and success using basic tips from the classic game plus fun skill building drills. We always begin a class from a 'tai chi' perspective versus a 'kung fu' one. You don't need any experience to participate in these meetups and will learn all components of a great game in slow motion, which you will gradually be able to speed up!  ALTERNATIVELY, you can make this the skill level of your choice by choosing 'your private hour' option. Each session will be up to hour long (depending on your punctuality!).

One of the things that I intend for you to achieve by means of these meetups is flexibility, the understanding an error can be like a blip on a screen that need not become the defining statement on your abilities.  Rather, as a former mentor of mine used to say, "let it roll off you like water off a duck's back."  There are countless means of bringing your attention back to the current moment, to the next ball that is already upon you.  We make multiple errors when we stay stuck with the shot that is over, even a second ago.

Another important skill we need to cultivate is the ability to identify just exactly what we are doing when we initiate or respond to a shot, so that adjustments are not only possible, but simplified.

Anyone that attends my groups with an open mind, ready to possibly look at their game from a slightly different perspective is usually pleasantly surprised. I think you will be as well!

Please feel free to come a half hour early as I will be doing my best to do the same! PLEASE RSVP yes far enough in advance (MINIMUM 24 hours), so I can be in touch with you beforehand to make sure that you have my phone # in case you don't see me. RSVPs will close by 1 PM the day before. Should you be NEW IN TOWN or VISITING and want to try for a last minute appointment, then you MUST contact me via PRIVATE MEETUP MESSAGE. I should get the message within a couple of hours and will do my best to accommodate you, though I may have made other plans by then.

You be in touch with me through one of the message boards, through comments or rsvp for this meetup, or through email. I only exchange phone numbers via email. 

Want to start sooner?  Then contact me immediately.

Please tell a friend!

Thanks for your interest!  See you soon on court :)
