RSC: Group Tennis Lessons - Session II

Looking to bring your game to the next level?

Choose from Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced classes.


Novice classes (Tennis rating 1.0 to 3.0): Ideal for those have played Tennis before but want to touch up on fundamentals! If you have a basic understanding of Tennis and have limited experience then this is the class for you!  The student/instructor ratio is set to a maximum of 6 students per tennis pro. 


Intermediate classes (Tennis rating 3.0 to 4.0): Designed for those with some experience.  We build on the player’s base skills by working on placement (cross court and down the line shots), the application of spin on the ball (topspin and under spin) and placement of the overhead serve in the service box. By the end of this course the player should be able to maintain a 10-shot rally and have a reliable serve. Doubles and singles strategy is introduced as well as match play and other fun game situations. The student/instructor ratio is set to a maximum of 6 students per tennis pro.


Advanced classes (Tennis rating 4.0+): For the avid tennis player who wants to bring their game to the next level. Shot placement and spin application is worked on as well as specialty shots such as lobs, drop shots, the overhead smash angle shots and much more. Both singles and doubles match play is a big part of the course. This is a course that is designed for players that are playing or have the goal to play in leagues as well as club and NCTA tournaments. The student/instructor ratio is set to a maximum of 4 students per tennis pro
