Eagle Fustar Tennis Academy at Pleasanton Tennis Park

WE ARE EAGLE FUSTAR TENNIS

At Eagle Fustar, we proudly prepare our athletes for the highest level of competition possible in junior, collegiate and professional tennis. Different players have different goals – whether a player aspires to join a high-level D1 program, A DIII program, attend a university of the highest academic regard, compete on the ATP, WTA and ITF tours, or a combination of those – Eagle Fustar knows how to get there. Our track record speaks for itself; every year Eagle Fustar boasts players that win titles at sectional, national, intercollegiate, international and professional levels. For more than a decade, we have been honored to see our players commit to the top athletic and academic universities.

The Eagle Fustar philosophy is low player to coach ratios, challenging drills with constant feedback, daily strategic point play, and very little to no idle time on the court. Our environment is challenging and driven by accountability, strength, and respect. We follow and track our students results in both USTA, ITF, and school tournament play. We encourage goal setting and push our students daily to achieve those goals, while understanding the level of commitment and the sacrifices it takes to be the best. We demand hard work, while preserving and encouraging the passion for a great sport that can be a lifetime activity. We train hard, but most importantly – by enforcing a passionate commitment to excellence – we produce players that bring their best, on and off the court, every day.

Programs

  • High Performance Clinics (HPC)

    High Performance (HP) clinics will be offered on every Tuesday, Thursday from 4:00 – 6:00pm at Pleasanton Tennis Park and Saturdays from 10:00am – 12:00pm at Amador High School.

    The High Performance Program is open to juniors ages 10-18 who have a 4.5+ UTR and/or are solidly competing at the USTA 12 Open and up level. HP clinics are critical to a player’s development, advancing the skills and game fundamentals brought into this level by strengthening the tactical and strategic aspects of their on-court presence. During these advanced clinics, players will receive specific technical instruction and be exposed to point play and stroke-production drills with additional physical activities to complement court movement. Developing mental toughness is an integral part of HPC. Depending on player history and record, an evaluation may be required prior to participation.

Plans & Pricing

Flex Plan

To participate in the Eagle Fustar High Performance clinics, players may purchase a single drop in clinic, purchased on site day of play, or a monthly package of clinics called a “Flex Plan” at the tennis office or through the Pleasanton Tennis Center website. Each Flex Plan is for a certain number of clinics that are to be used within the calendar month. Flex Plans offer a discount over the drop-in rate. A PFP4 is four High Performance clinics per month, an PFP6 is six High Performance clinics per month and an PFP8 is eight High Performance clinics per month. A player may attend clinics on any day that the clinic is offered during the month. A Flex Plan is valid for a single calendar month and may not be shared.

FAQ

A Flex Plan includes a certain number of clinics that are to be used within a calendar month and offers a discount over the drop-in rate. An FP4 is 4 High Performance clinics per month, an FP6 is 6 clinics per month and an FP8 is 8 clinics per month. To distinguish the Pleasanton Tennis Center, they will be referred to as the PFP4, PFP6, PFP8. A player may attend their number of clinics on any day it is offered during the month.
Eagle Fustar players devote a large amount of time to their tennis. They also need to balance other demands – particularly their academics and family commitments. These plans give them the FLEXibility needed to excel in everything they do with a healthy balance.
No, that is the benefit of the Flex Plan, your player attends when it works for them. If they have a big test to study for, come another day. We are prepared and ready at every clinic. Attend at your convenience.
All clinics start with activation and then warm up. After that, each clinic may mix up the order but always includes drilling, point play and conditioning.
Drop in clinics are always paid for onsite at the tennis office on day of play. Flex Plans may also be purchased on site but may also be purchased online through the Lifetime Activities - Pleasanton location website. Please note, the High Performance clinics at the Pleasanton Tennis Center are independent of HP Clinics at other Eagle Fustar locations. When registering for a Pleasanton Flex Plan (PFP), you may only attend EF clinics at the Pleasanton Tennis Center. Conversely, those registered for Flex Plans through Eagle Fustar may not attend clinics at PTC unless they register for a separate plan through PTC.
Because of the number of clinics available to players during a month is much greater than the number offered in the Flex Plans, it is unlikely that a player is unable to complete the plan they paid for due to illness. Of course, we understand there may be exceptions to this. Injuries are considered on a case by case basis and may require medical documentation. Typically, when applicable, the appropriate amount of credit is determined and carried forward to the next plan.
Because of the number of clinics offered each month it is unlikely that a player will be unable to complete all of the clinics in their plan. However, there are months where weather is extreme, and our goal is to get you playing tennis! Therefore, we do review and sometimes adjust policy when it is an extremely wet month. It is incumbent on players to watch weather patterns during the rainy season and make a strong effort to attend when it is dry. Please see the Eagle Fustar Rain Policy for more details.
Eagle Fustar coaches use the Eagle Fustar Twitter account to notify players of any cancellation of clinic due to acts of nature or other unexpected events. You may also call the Pleasanton Tennis Center Office to get court conditions and clinic status at 925-931-3449.
No, the Flex Plans offer you the flexibility to come to whatever clinic day is offered during the month that works best for your schedule each week.
No, Flex Plans at PTC are individual.
If your player meets the requirements via UTR or tournament play/ranking, they may register for an HP Flex Plan through the Lifetime Activities-Pleasanton location website. Please see the Program description to understand the criteria used to determine program placement.
