The sound of volleying balls and shuffling feet fill Silvia Tennis Academy's courts as beginning and experienced players alike hone their skills through clinics, leagues, lessons, and classes targeted to tutor any age. The crew of background-checked trainers and staff members attend at least three continuing-education events each year to sharpen racquet skills and hone teaching techniques. Cardio Tennis classes—which director Viola Madej promotes through seminars and training—get kids moving to improve athletic performance and inspire active lives, and adults sweat to similar high-energy workouts that fuse fun with aerobic training. Players who want extra practice or to play matches on their own time can use the academy's online court-reservation service, which books court time without requiring an old-fashioned phone call or singing telegram.

Tim Cundy draws on more than 16 years of experience as a PGA professional to smooth out swings and tailor lessons for beginner and professional golfers alike. During each one-hour lesson, golfers swing irons and woods while working one-on-one with Cundy to straighten hooks into green-seeking spears. A certified Hank Haney pro associate instructor, Cundy has experience in guiding greenhorns and fine-tuning the shots of pros, ensuring each lesson helps fairway frolickers lower handicaps by improving their stance, grip, and ability to command the wind. Lessons are held at one of two outdoor ranges or inside a sheltered teaching facility. The sheltered swing center is replete with an indoor putting area and hitting bays overlooking the range and its mob of mannequin spectators.
