About this event


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.

All students must bring one new can of balls and tennis racquet to class.
