At Deer Creek Tennis Resort, athletes observe the arc of descending balls and knock them back toward opponents with a grunt. The facility hosts matches atop 10 Har-Tru courts and two hard courts, where renters engage in recreational play or measure their skills and vocabulary against competitors at men's and women's leagues. During clinics, certified tennis instructors expound a different aspect of the game each week, and private lessons focus on players' individual weaknesses. Through the junior program, they lavish small groups of budding athletes with extra attention and weave training methods used by Association of Tennis Professionals and Women's Tennis Association pros into instructional sessions. Molded around sure strokes, mental toughness, body conditioning, and intelligent match play, the program stands in contrast against yoga and water aerobics classes, which focus solely on fitness and gaining enough muscle to easily charge through an opponent's tennis net.
