Adult tennis programs
This group focuses on everything from stroke instruction to doubles strategy. All levels of player are welcome to participate in this fast-paced cardio drill and doubles’ play clinic.
Ladies’ 3.0 – 3.5
3.0 players are fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced short but are not as comfortable with all strokes and occasionally lack execution when trying for directional control, depth or power. Common doubles format is one-up, one-back. 3.5 players have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but need to develop depth and variety. They exhibit more aggressive net play, have improved court coverage, and are developing teamwork in doubles.
Ladies’ 4.0 – 4.5
4.0 players have dependable strokes, including directional control and depth on both forehand and backhand sides on moderate-paced shots. They use lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success and often force errors when serving. Teamwork in doubles is evident. 4.5 players have developed the use of power and spin and can handle pace. They have sound footwork, can control depth of shots and attempt to vary their game plan according to their opponents. Can hit first serves with power and accuracy and place the second serve. Aggressive net play is common in doubles.
This group focuses on all strokes as well as singles and doubles play.
