Together, we have developed a tennis development pathway that makes sense. Our approach to tennis teaching is based on gameplay and our players are learning to serve, rally and score from the very first lesson. They are playing the game!

 

From there, we develop an understanding of real game situations and guide our students to develop an awareness of the game through focus questions and realistic drills.

 

Our lessons are not only fun, but in each lesson our players are learning how to think during a tennis match and how to make adjustments to their games that make sense. 

 

Come and experience our game sense learning pathway!
