About this event

Description

This Beginning Tennis Class (USTA/NTRP 1.0-2.0) is designed for adults 18 & up who are new to the game of tennis or that have had very limited instruction. This is a very fun class, where building a proper tennis foundation to optimize unlimited development and a lifetime love for the game is fostered. You will learn basic scoring, proper grips, fundamental movement and the basic stroke technique for Serve, Forehand, Backhand, Volley's and Overheads. Whether you have not played in a long time or are starting fresh, this class will be an awesome part of your tennis journey. Participation in our Adult Classes allows you to participate FREE of charge in our Sunday 2.0-2.5 mixer when you and your instructor feel you are ready to enjoy recreational competition. For future reference, participation in any of our 3.0 & above Mixers will require an NTRP or PTC Rating in order to register, so either provide your NTRP Rating by emailing PTC Coordinator Bret Bowers at bret.bowers@portlandoregon.gov or if you DO NOT have an NTRP Rating, please register online on Portland Tennis Bookings for one of our PTC Rating Sessions.
Note: To determine level advancement in the Adult Development process, please consult with your Certified Professional Instructor as to when you are ready to advance.
