For students with little or no previous tennis instruction. Students will be introduced to the forehand, backhand, serve, and basic vocabulary.

Lesson Goal: maintain a six-to-ten shot “short court” rally and serve an average of 1 out of 3 balls into the correct service box.


For students completing 10 or more hours of beginning tennis. In this level, we will be adding movement to groundstroke rallying and improving serving technique.

Lesson Goal: maintain a full-court rally and serve an average of 1 out of 2 balls into the correct service box.


For students who have a good foundation as a current or former player.  Students will be introduced to volleys and overheads while improving overall confidence and consistency of the forehand, backhand and serve. Added movement becomes a key component at this level.

Lesson Goal: to be able to play an actual singles or doubles match.
