What should I bring to class?

Wear appropriate attire and bring a tennis racquet, water and sunscreen. Take along a notepad to track your development.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable athletic wear. Women usually wear capri pants or tennis skirts and tank-tops. Men are suitable in shorts or lightweight pants and t-shirts or polo shirts. All white is not required, we like color! Tennis shoes (not running or athletic shoes) are strongly recommended. Tennis shoes are designed for lateral movement with more ankle support. Students who injure their feet and ankles out on the courts are always wearing inappropriate footwear.

My 17-year-old son/daughter is playing at the varsity high school level, can they join an adult class?

Depending on the individual, high school-age children generally do fine in an adult group. On occasion, we can find other teenagers or you may be able to recruit some of your son or daughter’s friends to create a special group that can be scheduled at a location and time convenient for you.

I'm going to miss some classes due to schedule conflicts, how do I reschedule?

You may submit a make-up request via the website or call the office (773-278-8877). For students who attend classes 1x a week, you are permitted 1 personal makeup per session. For students who attend classes 2x a week, you are permitted 2 make-ups per session. You must complete make-ups within the same session. We will do our best to accommodate all make-up requests, but please keep your schedule in mind when committing to a class. For those who have trouble committing to a particular class schedule, customized class registration is available.

Do I need to be a member?

Tennis On The Lake does not charge membership fees.
