Beginner lessons are the perfect opportunity for children to learn the fundamentals of Tennis. Activities focus on building Agility, Balance, and Coordination skills (ABC’s) while developing the on-court skills needed. They will further develop both forehand and backhand ground strokes, appropriate grip, and tennis-specific footwork patterns. Players will eventually advance to the Advanced Beginner program with a much-improved understanding of how to “play” the game. Ages 7-9 years.
Advanced Beginner classes are designed to continue building athletic skills while learning or refining the skills necessary to serve, volley and score. Players will continue to develop ground strokes/volleys/serves, work on footwork, and also begin learning strategy. Ages 10 & up.
Lessons are held at the Lincoln Park Tennis Courts on N. 8th Street and are 50 minutes in length.
This program is co-sponsored by the Y and taught by YMCA Staff. Each child will be evaluated and may be asked to move to a different level based upon their skill.
