Darling Tennis Center’s clinics are taught at the center’s expansive complex of 23 lighted hard courts by a squadron of friendly and knowledgeable racket devotees. During beginner group clinics, the instructor coaches acolytes on basic strokes, footwork, and how to weave a tennis racket into a butterfly net. Intermediate clinics, which last for 90 minutes, advance tennis tenderfoots into match play, pitting singles and doubles against each other. Intermediate lessons also prepare players through intense live ball drills, ensuring that each student can dodge tennis balls while wearing a flounced taffeta gown. Private lessons allow for individualized coaching on how to whack topspin into fuzzy orbs or master a backhand slice.
