What You'll Get
Like classic Hollywood films, tennis matches are filled with multiple loves, sneaky backhanded moves, and tense, sweat-inducing court scenes. Add some drama to your day with today's Groupon: for $50, you get six one-hour group tennis lessons for beginners at Charlotte Racquet Club North (a $150 value).
Charlotte Racquet Club North's students learn about their racquets while practicing basic footwork and strokes on 12 clay and two hard courts, building up to more dynamic rallying sessions. Fountains and flowers greet visitors as they approach a 6,000-square-foot clubhouse outfitted with a pro shop and a wraparound porch where spectators can follow the rhythmic thwacks and confused shouts of "fore!"
Origin Stories: What's All That Racket?
Since Pattie Smith and her husband built Charlotte Racquet Club North in 1998 to infuse northern Charlotte with much-needed tennis action, they’ve watched the club blossom from seven courts and a doublewide trailer to a sweeping 14-court facility complete with a pool and a fitness complex. Pattie plans on adding four indoor courts by November to keep members playing through the winter—including one 78-year-old ace who games, sets, and matches twice a week.
