Instructors help the players become familiar with basic tennis fundamentals and etiquette, all while developing eye-hand coordination. Movement skills are also developed through games and exercise. The kids play tennis that is made for them on smaller courts with smaller nets and slower moving balls so they can have more fun and want to keep playing.
The adult class introduces or reintroduces the game of tennis to players who are just starting to play or have limited playing experience or movement.
