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 $29, you get a four-week Intro to Tennis Program for adults or kids (a $60 value) at The Tennis Club at Springhurst and Top Gun Tennis Academy, the club’s affiliate outdoor court. Kids' classes are only available at Top Gun Tennis Academy, while adult classes are held at both locations.
Players ages 18 and older gather for hour-long adult lessons held at varying times five days a week. Classes for junior smashers age 6–12 occur Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, and distribute students by age group.
The USPTA- and PTR-certified instructors introduce beginning juniors and adults to a thrilling sport at the club's two top-notch facilities. The Intro to Tennis program features a step-by-step methodology that helps players learn tennis fundamentals. The club outfits hands with all necessary equipment, including rackets and a how-to guide to producing the most intimidating grunts. Teachers adjust the curriculum for mini-racket players age 10 and younger, employing the USTA Quickstart format's foam and low compression balls, age-appropriate nets, and attenuated court sizes to facilitate fun, rewarding play.
Enrollment comes with a one-month membership and unlimited walk-on court time at both Springhurst's commodious clubhouse and 10 indoor courts and at Top Gun Academy, which boasts 16 indoor and outdoor courts. Register online here for adult and junior introductory classes.
