Rays of sunlight pour through skylights and glaze Glastonbury Tennis Club’s six recently resurfaced courts, where friendly professionals cater private clinics to each player’s ability. No experience is required during the 60-minute beginner clinic, which cycles through the sport’s fundamentals, such as how to grip the racket, keep score, and block out the ball’s shrill shrieking. Students with a modicum of court savvy can opt for the intermediate session, which molds players into proper form while pairing movement exercises with competitive play. Designed for students with a 3.5 USTA rating or above, the advanced clinic allows athletes to hone their strokes and serves while networking with one of Glastonbury’s resident experts or feral ball machines.
