Learn to Play Tennis - Session II

We are bringing "Learn to Play Tennis" indoors at the Rideau Sports Centre (RSC) this Winter!


Learn to play is for brand new players who have little to no playing experience. If you’ve never held a racquet or have only played a handful of times, this is the perfect class for you! The goal is to have players develop proficiency in the five core tennis strokes and basics: forehand and backhand, forehand and backhand volleys and overhead serves. This class will be a very informative and friendly introduction to the game and perfect for beginners! 


The student/instructor ratio is set to a maximum of 6 students per tennis pro to ensure you get the most enjoyment and skill development.

Registration deadline is Wednesday, March 6th at midnight!

LATE FESS will apply to all registrations received after the deadline.
