Tennis Instructional (Int Level) - Rideau Sports Centre

We are bringing Tennis Instructional indoors at the Rideau Sports Centre (RSC) so you can take your game to the next level during the Winter while enjoying the amenities at RSC!


In the Intermediate level you will upgrade the five most important strokes: forehand, backhand, serve, volley, and overhead. You will learn simple, yet powerful strategies, and some of the other specialty shots like the half volley, return of serve, passing shot, and approach shot, which you need for a more complete game of tennis. Improve and learn new things to make the game more fun. Break through the “intermediate plateau”.


The student/instructor ratio is set to a maximum of 4 students per tennis pro to ensure you get the most enjoyment and skill development.
