Your Pathway
Learn the basics
This is an introduction to tennis. Here, we’ll help players develop sound fundamental technique for all strokes while teaching them about the basic tactics for singles and doubles. At this stage it’s not about winning or losing, it’s just getting to grips with the basics and building a consistent game, giving players the confidence to serve, rally and score.
Develop a rounded game
Players at this stage feel confident holding rallies of 10 shots or more from the back of the court and start to feel comfortable coming into the net to volley. Sessions incorporate basket drills and live ball drills where players develop the use of depth, spin and direction allowing them to progress to the next level
Putting it all together
At this stage players may well be representing the club in team tennis and competing in external tournaments. Sessions are tailored for the match-play scenarios of rally, attack and defend and players develop a greater awareness of the technical and tactical demands of the game.
