  2.  Our goal is to teach you a sport of a lifetime. It's important to learn the proper fundamentals for each stroke so that you can build a foundation that will allow you to
    improve and reach the level you desire. There are no short-cuts to building a solid foundation and without proper guidance, it's very difficult to enjoy the game of tennis.

    What will you learn?
    1. The proper fundamentals for the forehand and back ground strokes, forehand and back ground volleys, overhead, and the serve.
    2. Each class will focus on 1 stroke per 2 classes, so that the motor memory you have learned will be reinforced.
    3. Proper movement is critical to a tennis players development. Unfortunately, tennis is not played in a vacuum, so you need to learn how to effectively move on the  
  3.      tennis court.
  4. 4. How to have fun! Tennis can be a frustrating game, but our main goal, is to make you love the game!!
  5. 5. We strongly recommend purchasing a video. Most people are visual learners and they light bulb usually goes off when they see them on video paired next to a pro.     Our video audio lesson will include every shot of your game. Each stroke will be compared to a tennis professional  so you can see where your game needs to go.
        Once the video is taken, I will analyze it with audio instruction and drawing tools, when it's done, I will email it to you so you can access it online.
  6.     The cost of the video analysis is 50.00.
