Tennis Club at Springhurst’s team of USPTA- and PTR-certified instructors serves up the finer points of tennis at two professional-level facilities during four-week classes for kids and adults. Students select their date and time to slam a salvo of balls in time to bumping tunes during Cardio Tennis classes, whose hour of movement drills is open to all levels of athlete and anything sporting a sweatband. Intro to Tennis classes invite students to develop game or refresh their skills with step-by-step instruction on basic strokes and techniques, with all tennis tackle included. Teachers adjust the curriculum for players aged 10 and younger, employing the USTA Quickstart format’s foam and low-compression balls, age-appropriate nets, and attenuated court sizes to facilitate smaller limbs. Enrollment in the Intro to Tennis program comes with a one-month membership and unlimited walk-on court time at Springhurst’s commodious clubhouse.
The Tennis Club at Springhurst
The Tennis Club at Springhurst places top-notch instructors at the helm of both of its professional-level facilities, where programs, camps, and classes help players of all ages develop their skills. Opened in 1998, the multifaceted Springhurst location combines 10 indoor tennis courts with areas for golf, field hockey, volleyball, and basketball to form a one-stop training haven. The academy’s other location, Top Gun Academy, has grown to include 13 outdoor tennis courts and a 18,000-square-foot indoor turf field. Dually dedicated to excellence in sports, both facilities offer programs that have helped produce college-level players and championship teams.
