Our Goal is for the Beginner courses to give you the basic skills that will allow you to get out and chase the yellow ball for the rest of your life and want more.

Novice
Our Novice 10 hour course will help you improve the basic skills to add consistency and placement to the fundamental skills. Ground strokes, volleys and serves will improve to have you playing at full court. We coach weekly themes on consistency and placement to develop match skills and compete for fun with a great bunch of people. Our Goal is for the Novice Player to know how to practice and improve these skills in fun and play before you take the Novice Plus.

Novice Plus is where even more fun begins. Top spin for your forehand, slice for the backhand and a consistent serve. Players will be introduced to tactics and strategies for singles and doubles developing your skills in low key competitive play with your classmates. Our Goal is for the Novice Plus player to be able to play a game in almost any social setting and practice and play until they need more. Lower Intermediate and beyond.
