Waveland Park Adult Classes

  • Waveland 3650 N Recreation Dr, Chicago, IL 60613

Adult group tennis lessons are offered for all skill levels and designed to help you improve your technique and point-play tactics. Group classes consist of a cardio or consistency warm-up, followed by feeding drills to work on stroke production, then point-play drills to apply strokes and work on strategy. In each class you will get a work out, learn something new and have FUN.

Each session lasts four weeks. Weekday classes meet twice per week Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday (8 classes) and weekend classes meet once per week Saturday or Sunday (4 classes). Classes are offered in 60 min, 90 min. and 120 min. durations. Two personal makeups are allowed for weekday class enrollment and one personal makeup is allowed for weekend class enrollment. If you need help deciding which level to enroll in, please contact the office to speak with the administrator or Tennis Director.
