Adult Programs

Adult group tennis lessons are offered for all skill levels and designed to help you improve your technique and point play tactics. Drill & Play clinics are available for levels Advanced Beginner and above and emphasize match play strategies. Our exclusive TOTL training system will help you become a better tennis player by strengthening the mind body connection and ensuring a solid foundation for future progress. If you need help deciding which level to enroll in, please contact the club to speak with the tennis director.

Group Classes

90-minute group classes consist of a cardio or consistency warm-up followed by feeding drills to work on stroke production and point play drills to apply strokes and work on strategy. In each class you will get a work out, learn something beneficial to you and have FUN.

Drill & Play Clinics

The Drill & Play Clinics will consist of drills similar to the 90-minute group classes but also include at least 30-minutes of match-play at the end of each class. Drill & Play Clinics are a great way to immediately apply newly acquired skills in an actual match scenario.
