Fall Beginner-Advanced Beginner Group Lesson & Practice
We offer Group Tennis Lessons and Practice to group members on Saturday afternoons throughout the Fall season at the location listed above in Dunwoody, weather permitting. The fee is $20 cash per person for a 2 hour Group Lesson. Whether you are brand new to the game, or a "seasoned" advanced beginner looking to sharpen your skills, come on out and join us! Just click the "I'm Going" RSVP button for the day you'd like to attend. I send out an email to group members by the Friday night before each lesson, to confirm whether or not we will be having the Group Lesson the following day, based on the weather and sufficient group member participation. Please be sure to set your preferences to "Receive Organizer Messages" to make sure you receive my emails regarding the Group Lessons. I hope to meet up with you on the courts soon! Thank you. Jason Berens Group lessons are a cheap and fun way to get started! Every weekend, meet up and play with other group members who are working on their game. Some will have more experience than others, but it's a great way to meet new friends to hit with and play practice games. Come on out and hit with others who want to improve their game with no pressure.

What we're about

We offer Adult Group Tennis Lessons and Practice to our group members on Saturday afternoons throughout the year at the location listed on our homepage in Dunwoody, weather permitting. The fee is $20 per person for a 2 hour Group Lesson. This is far and away the best deal you will find in Atlanta for beginner tennis lessons, drills, and practice offered on an ongoing basis. After the drills portion of the Group Lesson, we typically stay and play one to two sets of Mixed Doubles, practicing the shots we have worked on during the first part of the lesson. Whether you are brand new to the game, or a "seasoned" advanced beginner looking to sharpen your skills and get back into shape, come on out and join us! Just click the "I'm Going" RSVP button for the day you'd like to attend. I send out an email to group members by the Friday night before each lesson, to confirm whether or not we will be having the Group Lesson the following day, based on the weather and sufficient group member participation. Please be sure to set your preferences to "Receive Organizer Messages" to make sure you receive my emails regarding the Group Lessons. We hope to meet up with you on the courts soon! Thank you.
