Tennis Lessons

Tennis lesson fees are charged in addition to your annual Seminole dues.

We encourage you to pick a class that is within reach of your child’s abilities, so he or she feels a sense of achievement when the session ends. Then it’s OK to advance to the next skill level.

The Beginner class covers the basic techniques for the forehand and backhand, volley and courtesy serve. Games are played with balls fed to the child.

The Advanced Beginner class emphasizes technique and placement.

The Intermediate class is for students who are able to sustain a rally for at least three hits in a row over the net. Drills and games include playing out points.

The Advanced Intensive Drill class is primarily geared for high school students and players wanting to play competitive tennis. Drills and match play will improve skills in pressure tennis, consistency and strategy.

The Late Night Extreme Tennis class makes you stretch your tennis skills to the extreme under the starry night and the lights. Advanced level.
