Try Group Lessons for More Fun!


Group lessons consist usually of three or more players and is used to incorporate the general principles of tennis. The professional instructor is there to give overall instruction and not individual technical stroke issues.
 

Info for Students

  • Come prepared to learn
  • Students should have same skill level as possible
  • Have a specific lesson goal in mind
  • Proper warm-up
  • Proper tennis equipment (racquet, shoes, etc.)
  • Adequate hydration
  • Adequate cool down (stretching approx. five minutes)

As an Instructor I enjoy when my students are pushed to the point where they are tired. I believe that it gives them a sense that they have accomplished something in their tennis lesson. It also gives me the satisfaction that I have given them a workout so that they would like to come back.

group tennis lessonI often do this with just the right amount of instruction and drills as to keep the lesson moving but not to tire the student to the point of exhaustion.

In the cases where I get students that are in good physical condition and actually look for a good workout

I usually point them in the direction of Cardio Tennis, which is a one hour workout that is not just geared to tennis players.

Instead is a non-instructional class where the participants can get a heart pumping workout without necessarily being concerned about proper tennis technique.

For those individuals that want to concentrate on their strokes however,
I encourage them to participate with a couple of their friends who might want to split the cost of the lesson in order to save on expenses.



What I do when teaching this type of class is to pick a theme. The theme may be anything from racquet preparation on the forehand to serving.

With everyone having their own issues or stroke deficiencies it is not the time to work on any one individuals problems.

 

Instead, what I do is to stress the techniques by demonstrating the stroke and then have go through several tennis drills where the stroke can be utilized.

When taking a group lesson, don't put a lot of pressure on yourself to outdo your fellow students, even though you may feel like they are your competition. Instead try and pay strict attention to the instructor and the particular stroke that he is teaching. There will be plenty of time in the future to try what you have learned on your friends.
