Tennis, so named for the tenfold increase in court size over its precursor, Ping-Pong, is the only sport to combine the thrill of swatting balls at your opponent with the high ceremony of the "racquet swap." Improve your skills in this illustrious sport with today’s Groupon. For $20, you get a one-on-one lesson at Plaza Tennis Center, located in Country Club Plaza (a $45 value). Use your Groupon for one lesson and the PTC will take 20% off your next two one-on-one private lessons. Be sure to check the schedule to plan your class.
At Plaza Tennis Center, each trainer hails from KC United Tennis, a college-prep tennis program. These green-sphere gurus sharpen the swings of 90-year-old beginners, 7-year-old prodigies, and ageless Burt Reynolds action figures. If you’re uncertain whether your serve is serviceable or hazardous to airborne creatures, your instructor will conduct an on-court skill evaluation and discuss areas for improvement at the end of the session. Newly-minted tennis hounds are known to dream fondly of their first successful backhand and final quackhand. To continue that reverie, present your Groupon after your first lesson and take 20% off your next two one-on-one private lessons, which normally range from $30 for a half hour to $45 for a full hour.
A tile-roofed clubhouse and four and a half acres of greenery surround the PTC’s 14 lighted outdoor courts in the heart of Kansas City. After your lesson, use your confident new swing to ward off spitballs, lob cupcakes to men trapped in clocktowers, and give high-threes to the outstretched claw of a pterodactyl.
The Plaza Tennis Center
Captained by extensively experienced staffers, The Plaza Tennis Center invites racquets to swing in private and group lessons, tennis leagues, and tournaments. Private sessions for adults and children home in on individual skills customized around student goals and styles of play, while group classes pit pairs of friends and prefriends in calorie-burning drills emphasizing repetition and situational point play. Meanwhile, leagues pair similarly matched players in social beginner pairings, coed World Team Tennis formations, or Flex groups. The Plaza Tennis Center also hosts an array of tournaments on its 14 outdoor courts—each lighted and tinted in U.S. Open colors—where players of all ages and levels of experience face off over the net.
