The game of tennis has taken Jennifer Itonyo from her native Nigeria to earning All-American honors as a singles and doubles player in college. Today, she coaches budding phenoms and casual players alike at Hampton Tennis Center, where seven clay courts host racket swingers for casual games as well as tournament play. Most students come to her for lessons that help them shore up rickety serves or add oomph to their forehand smashes. Workout-minded players can incorporate vigorous aerobic exercise during cardio tennis lessons for an extra challenge. The center also offers a racket-restringing service, which comes in handy when they get worn out from overuse or overly vigorous air-guitar riffs.

Anchored by a trio of experienced aces—including PGA-certified director of instruction Ed Collins and owner Dave Williams—Hampton Roads Golf Academy travels to courses throughout the greater Hampton Roads area to spread the pastime of golf. The pros wake each morning to the sound of humming lawnmowers and giggling 9-irons to keep alive their golf enthusiasm, which they impart in private, group, and on-course lessons. The academy’s V1 video analysis software helps instructors shed light on the murky abyss of pupils’ swings, playing back each shot in slow motion to pinpoint the root cause of each unsightly slice and snap hook. Hampton Roads Golf Academy holds lessons at four area courses, two of which boast covered and heated ranges to allow for lessons during chilly winters or divot hailstorms.
