INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE LESSON
One-on-one instruction is the fastest & most convenient way to improve one’s tennis ability. Please call our office to schedule your appointment. Together, you can establish short or long-term goals.
SMALL GROUP PRIVATE LESSON
Small group lessons (2-4 students) offer a quality & affordable alternative to the private lesson. Getting the most from your Private Lesson.
A good rule is to practice at least one time in between every private lesson you take. This helps process the information from the lesson & allows for less review in future lessons. Practice with other players or use a ball machine service. Focus on one thing at a time & realize that it may take a while for the new information to become automatic. Be patient with yourself.
