A tennis lesson is only as helpful as its instructor. Thankfully, Doylestown Tennis Club has a veteran staff of certified USPTA pros on hand to coach players of all experience levels.

At this functional studio, certified instructors lead small classes of 16 people or less through intense cardio stationary bike workouts, paired with constantly changing lights and music.

Gyms provide people with all of the equipment and guidance that they need to pursue their individual fitness goals. AFC Fitness is more than a gym though. Instead, the centers provide their members with a comprehensive range of services intended to help people not only get in better shape, but also begin living healthier lifestyles in general. This broad approach is apparent throughout the centers' massive selection of group fitness classes, which includes everything from aerial yoga and Pilates to CrossFit workouts and high-intensity water aerobics.
Personal trainers are also on hand to lend their expertise and coaches offer sports-specific training that covers the fundamentals of baseball or tennis. However, the focus isn't limited to guided workouts and fitness classes. AFC Fitness's physical therapists can help people gradually recover from the mobility-limiting effects of injury or surgery and the registered dietitians provide customized consultations that explain the nutritional value of fresh produce compared to plastic fruit.
Whether training for a tournament or learning the rules for the first time, tennis players have plenty to love about the Pennsbury Racquet Club. Nine indoor courts, each newly resurfaced and illuminated with extra-bright, eco-friendly lighting, invite players to test their skills against each other, a ball machine, or the disapproving sports announcer in their head. To take players' games to the next level, USPTA- and PTR-certified coaches, some with more than 25 years of experience, offer private and semi-private lessons. There's also an on-site racket repair center, where players can get their equipment restrung and customized by a professional tech who's worked for Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, and Maria Sharapova.

The club also hosts USTA tournaments and events that blur the line between competitive and social, such as the Beer and Balls doubles league. After a three-set match or a particularly tough practice session, members and their guests can cool off at the outdoor pool. A lounge, men's and women's locker rooms, and a full-service tennis shop are also available.
