Tennis balls are notorious playground bullies that smack defenseless racquets in the face before escaping over the fence to hide from teachers. Learn to mete out backhanded justice with today's Groupon: for $50, you get four group tennis lessons at Blakeney Racquet and Swim Club (up to a $100 value).
Students hit Blakeney Racquet and Swim Club's clay and asphalt courts to train with experienced pros in sweat-soaked one-hour sessions. At four to six students, classes are small enough to give each racquet swisher a dollop of individual attention, but large enough to fend off bear attacks. Tennis tutors can teach neophytes basic techniques such as forehand, backhand, and sleight of hand, or show experts how to pick up tennis balls with just the power of their minds. All four classes must be scheduled within a six-week period.
