This Adult Advanced Intermediate Tennis Class (USTA/NTRP 3.5) is designed for adults 18 & up who are comfortable in match play situations and need more work on strategy, communication, shot selection and placement, advanced movement/agility, weapon development, approach shots, first volley and close volley combinations, defense to offense transitioning, and lob/overhead placement.
At this level of play, players can participate, FREE of Charge during the session duration, in either our 3.5 Mixers (Please check Covid-19 availability, as Mixers may not be available).
However, 3.5 Mixers and above require an NTRP or PTC Rating in order to register, so either provide your NTRP Rating by emailing PTC Coordinator Bret Bowers at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you DO NOT have an NTRP Rating, please register online on Portland Tennis Bookings for one of our PTC Rating Sessions.
