What are the options?

Beginner 1

This 60-minute class is designed to introduce the basic skills of tennis through repetition and partner based activities. Throughout the course adults will cover all the fundamental strokes of tennis; forehand, backhand, volleys and serves. An emphasis will be placed on learning and understanding the basic mechanics of a tennis shot. Towards the end of each course, the skills learnt will be complimented by engaging in a light, fun game play format. This gives all players the basic concept of how to use their strokes during a game of tennis.

Beginner 2

This 60-minute session is a more in depth look at the technical aspect of each stroke. An introduction of tactic driving technique will be taught. A focus will be placed on players learning how to integrate their stroke development with point play. Here players will further develop their understanding of how to structure a basic tennis point. By the end of the course, players will have the ability to play out a game of tennis.

Intermediate 1

This level is for those who are beginning to play at a more socially competitive level. A further integration of tactics will be taught during a 60-minute session. Players will develop a greater understanding of the movement and positioning required to play at a more competitive level. Here a focus will be on how to more broadly construct a competitive point. Also a greater emphasis will be placed on serving in relation to point construction.

Intermediate 2

As players progress further a greater tactical awareness is needed. These 60-minute sessions are designed to cater to the player who wishes to participate at a more competitive level. Players will work more on reading the depths of the rally ball along with hitting into spaces during this phase. There is still a focus on the technical aspects of the swing, however more focus is on how that helps during a rally and or match scenario. Combinations and patterns of play are a key element throughout the course.

Adult Squad

These 90-minute sessions cater for all levels and are designed to complement the adult courses. Technique is a strong focus during the Beginner to Advanced stages however the Adult Squad is more about putting that into practice through repetition and games. Groups split into their approximate standards and go through a range of drills and games that promotes greater improvement. All squads will have between 1 and 2 coaches directing and supervising the drills throughout the session.

Advanced Adult Squad

A hands on, work hard drill and point play 90-minute session. This session caters to the more advanced/competitive player, with the session being run by one of our experienced playing coaches. Here the coach will take the players through a range of drills and tactical point play exercises that helped shape their own tennis careers. This session carries the added bonus of the coach drilling and playing points with all participants throughout thus giving all an excellent challenge both physically and mentally
