Though canines love tennis for its bouncy yellow balls, humans appreciate the freedom to bark loudly with each swing and bury their favorite racquets all across the court. Become a tennis beast with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five group tennis lessons for beginners and novices at Florida Tennis Center in Daytona Beach (a $55 value).
Florida Tennis Center's one-hour clinics acquaint beginner and novice racqueteers with tennis fundamentals in an instructive, competitive environment. Players are grouped by age and ability, so baseline apprentices can begin to master tennis's trying techniques among those equally versed in the art of yellow-orb smashing. Glide across one of the complex's 24 green-clay courts as the ball machine serves up shots to batter cross-court with a textbook low-to-high forehand, a firm-wristed volley, or a highly illegal—but still impressive—scissor-kick. The club provides free loaner racquets to those yet to wrangle their own set of strings and the final class consists of a one-hour supervised practice match where players can test their meddle against fellow classmates and berate imaginary line judges.
Classes are conducted on a weekly basis, and customers can choose between lesson times on Mondays at 11 a.m., Wednesdays at 2 p.m., and Thursdays at 11 a.m. Since lessons are cumulative, purchasers should take the classes in one go. New sessions start every five weeks.
