About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Monday, August 2, 2021.

This clinic is taught by an Elite USPTA instructor and former ATP touring Pro or NCAA-level coach. The 90-minute session is designed for doubles-style game play to improve your doubles strategy; tennis strokes, consistency, and placement of the ball to get the opposition on defense. Players will learn to create opportunities through ball placement, improve court positioning, and solidify good footwork and form. In addition. Live ball is a great way for players to develop competitive skills, such as tactical use of lobs, overheads, approach shots, and volleys for net play - in a short time.

Face mask is required. All students must bring one new can of balls and tennis racquet to class.

Ernest Stone, Instructor: Ernest is a PTR certified coach and joins Beach City Tennis after serving as a staff pro with iTennis West Hollywood. Despite a late introduction to the game at age 15, Ernest played #2 singles and #1 doubles for Hart High School in Santa Clarita and is now a strong 5.5 level player who competes in UTR tournaments across California. Before coaching, he was a sports writer for local newspaper publications and radio outlets such as The Signal Newspaper and KHTS AM 1220 in Valencia. His favorite aspect of tennis is junior development and his ultimate goal is training a Wimbledon champion.
