👫 This tennis meetup is for new/beginner level players with zero to very minimal experience and takes place every Thursday.
⛔ Please keep in mind, this is not an instruction based coaching event. It's for players that are completely starting out and want to get familiar with the basics of the game, so if you're expecting a competitive level tennis match, this group is not for you.
Every thought about joining a beginner level tennis group to see, if the sport is for you? Then this is your group! Tennis is not only a good way to make new friends, but a great way to stay in shape and have fun while doing so! This group was created from the ground up for new and beginner level players with little to no experience. Players in this group will be focusing on the fundamentals of the game, keeping the ball on the court and maintaining a rally amongst other players. This is a self-taught learning group with other players who are starting out as well, so please don't be intimidated to come out.
Tennis requires many years of developing hand/eye coordination and muscle memory. It's a game of trial/error and learning to correct mistakes (you aren't advancing if you aren't making errors). It can be easily discouraging to learn a new skill on your own, but it's always more fun learning in a group setting! There may be times the group will go out to hit against a wall/racquetball court to work on their timing/technique. At times, a volunteer may also come out to teach other players the basics and run drills on the court.
There may also be extra racquets for use if you don't have your own. Please let us know in the comment section if you need to borrow a racquet and please be sure to return them back to the host at the end of the night. When you arrive at the courts, please keep an eye out for others in this Meetup group.
😀 Please refrain from showing up to this event, if you’re not on the RSVP list and avoid making late RSVP cancellations which may result in the removal of future event signups. If you’re on the waiting list, please be ready to show up to this event in case of a late RSVP confirmation.
