So you fancy having a go at tennis but don’t really know where to start? Don’t want to look silly but still want to have fun and get fit in the process? We deliberately keep the class small with two coaches to accommodate varying abilities. Each session will build upon the last focusing on technique across all the shots & games to slowly introduce and teach players the basics, including stroke production, serving and keeping score.
Week One: Groundstrokes, Forehands and Backhands
Week Two: Volleys and Smashes
Week Three: Serves
Week Four: Doubles Matchplay
The course is repeated and players are welcome to enroll as often as they feel they need to before moving onto ADULT IMPROVER or SOCIAL TENNIS.

Next Course begins: Monday 14th October

Fee: $80 +GST

This on-going term-time session is for more experienced players who want to gain consistency. Players at this standard will have a basic skill base and will probably have played tennis for some time. These sessions are for players who can rally with topspin consistently, control the volley with depth and direction and serve consistently.
At this level, we continue to work on your technical skills and apply them in match play situations. Improve your accuracy, ball control and decision-making skills - our sessions will enable you to excel in the game! You’ll develop your tactical awareness and improve your physical fitness, using drills specific to game situations.

So what is your standard?

Beginner…This means you’ve never played, just started playing, haven’t picked up a racket for years or are still working on the basics of your game.

Improver…You know the basic techniques and are able to keep a rally going, however you still make quite a few mistakes and you may find serving difficult.

Intermediate…You play fairly regularly and your technique is solid. You use some tactical play when competing but struggle a little when putting together points against advanced players.

Advanced…You have played a lot of tennis over many years. Serving with spin, placement and power are part of your game. You can rally consistently and create opportunities to win points off both your forehand and backhand. You compete regularly or have the desire to do so.

It’s difficult to make an objective self-rating; we recommend you ask a coach to decide for you.
