CREATE, PRACTICE, AND EXPAND YOUR TENNIS GAME

This class will use wall-hitting activities for maximized practice and skill mastery. Emphasis will be on stroke technique, foot work, conditioning, and other athletic skills that are important for tennis players, but just as applicable to other sports. This class will incorporate wall-drills such as single-player hitting of groundstrokes, volleys, alternate groundstrokes, approach shots, approach volleys, and serving. It will also include side-by-side rallying, singles and doubles alternate-hit games, and circle drills.
