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 $45, you get your choice of six 90-minute sessions of cardio tennis or six 90-minute intro to tennis classes (a $126 value) at the Tennis Club at Springhurst or at Top Gun Tennis Academy, the club’s affiliate outdoor court site. Tennis director and certified pro Pat Glaunert coaches aspiring top-spin doctors on the finer points of racketeering at two fully outfitted facilities. Net-workers can raise their pulses on one of Springhurst’s 10, indoor courts during the cardio tennis sessions, which focus on challenging movement drills with limited instruction. Intro to tennis classes introduce or review the basics of the fundamental strokes, allowing newcomers and Billy Jean Kings alike a refresher course on serving and volley slap shots. Sessions run throughout the weekdays and on weekends. Check Springhurst’s schedule for dates and times.
The Tennis Club at Springhurst
The Tennis Club at Springhurst places top-notch instructors at the helm of both of its professional-level facilities, where programs, camps, and classes help players of all ages develop their skills. Opened in 1998, the multifaceted Springhurst location combines 10 indoor tennis courts with areas for golf, field hockey, volleyball, and basketball to form a one-stop training haven. The academy’s other location, Top Gun Academy, has grown to include 13 outdoor tennis courts and a 18,000-square-foot indoor turf field. Dually dedicated to excellence in sports, both facilities offer programs that have helped produce college-level players and championship teams.
