Private tennis lessons are the most effective way to learn new strokes and shots that work for your personal style of play. A group lesson provides helpful tips on general playing and hitting skills, but private tennis lessons allow a teaching professional to see how you perform during a match so he or she can improve your game based on your individual needs.

Group tennis lessons help you achieve two goals:
  • Learn a new skill for the first time
  • Improve a stroke or shot you’re currently using

Tennis Stroke of the Day

Our instructional staff understands that there are many aspects to improving as a tennis player. One of those aspects is having fluid mechanics and great technique. Using video analysis will not only allow you to clearly identify areas that can be improved in your game, but also show you how to correct them. Your strokes will be analyzed by a member of our teaching staff, who will identify the roots of any technical problem and start to develop a plan to improve your game.
