When life gives you lemons, forehand them at 100 miles per hour into life’s court. Today's Groupon teaches you to swat yellow projectiles like a pro. For $40, you get four one-hour lessons over the course of four weeks from the TenniSchools program at Midtown Athletic Club in Overland Park (a $90 value). Lessons start on March 2 with a variety of class times, and all participants MUST call to reserve their class no later than February 28. Click here to view the schedule and additional information.
During the TenniSchools program, Midtown's trained, certified instructors will sculpt beginner swings alike into peak form. If you don't own a racket, Midtown will loan you one. Complimentary access to practice lanes lets you hone your new skills between classes, and full use of Midtown's locker-room amenities ensures you won't have to drive home sweaty. Though it's unlikely you'll develop tennis elbow (which can only be spread through sharing needles), it's quite probable that you'll find a future doubles partner while rubbing elbows at one of Midtown's two complimentary tennis parties.
In addition to tennis, today's Groupon to Midtown Athletic Club lets you enjoy four-week access to the club itself. The recently upgraded fitness center features dozens of pieces of cutting-edge equipment—including a pool, teleportation treadmills, and zero-gravity free weights—spread out across 7,000 square feet of cushioned flooring and surrounded by six 42” flat-screen TVs. Midtown also offers nursery privileges for your children so that they won't have to spend your entire workout perched adorably on the barbell you're lifting.
Must reserve your classes no later than February 28.
- Never have I seen a club with such excellent customer service, exceptional programing [sic] and pristine facility to go along with it. I joined on the spot during my first visit and could not be happier. The staff has accommodated all of my needs and I have more opportunities to play than hours in the day. – James C., Insider Pages
- The beginning tennis lessons (Tennis in No Time) is a fun and easy to learn curriculum that gets everyone there on the courts hitting balls in the first 10 min. – ceej, Google Maps
