What You'll Get
Though canines love tennis for its bouncy yellow balls, humans appreciate the freedom to bark loudly with each swing and bury their favorite rackets all over the court. Become a tennis beast with today's Groupon: for $80, you get 10 group tennis lessons (a $175 value) at Skywater Atlanta Tennis, located in Lilburn. Adult and children's classes can accommodate up to eight athletes. Beginner lessons are held on Saturdays and intermediate lessons are held on Sundays.
Skywater's USPTA-certified pros instill young racqueteers with tennis fundamentals and help seasoned players polish their game. The two-hour tutorials train fledgling McEnroes to craft careening crosscourt shots and loft looping lobs over outstretched opponents. Beginners will start off with basics—proper grip, simple footwork, and how to groom shaggy tennis balls. Those prone to quadruple faults can spruce up their serves, and baseliners can bolster their backhands and shore up approach shots. A solid split step readies players for their next rifling return shot, and a sound set of backhand slices can demolish incoming cucumbers.
Junior swatters learn baseline basics in a comfortable court setting designed to patiently encourage kids of all skill levels. Meanwhile, adult lessons provide a fun workout and an easy introduction to new playing partners.
