Skills & Benefits

Drills are focused on developing the basic shape of each stroke and their variations, including: forehand, backhand, serve, overhead, volley, slice, drop shots, and the like. Do you have a strategy of play or do you simply return the ball? Do you go cross court or down the line? Where should I place my serve? The staff’s attention to players emphasizes the development of key fundamental areas for optimal play.

You will have an opportunity to challenge many of your classmates and friends and climb to the top!
