The sport of tennis requires a racket, which sometimes causes a racket, especially when its strings are taught, tuned, and played with the teeth. Rock hard on the hard courts with today's Groupon: for $70, you get four one-hour, beginning tennis clinics at The Club of Riverdale (a $150 value). Beginners clinics meet on Monday or Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m. or 9 p.m., with new clinics kicking off at the beginning of each month from June to August. All four one-hour sessions must be redeemed during the same calendar month.
The Club of Riverdale's professional tennis instructors impart their tennis-ball-taming tutelage on racket-swinging students with beginners clinics. During each one-hour session, racket wielders develop fundamental tennis techniques and strategies. Group sizes remain smaller than eight students per court, enabling students to receive personally tailored tuning of their volleys and swing strokes. To accommodate the accumulation of wrist-bound education, the facility boasts six indoor hard courts, primed and paved for spherical exchanges.
The Club of Riverdale
Sometimes more is actually more. This is certainly true at The Club of Riverdale, where a 110,000 square feet complex houses an eclectic array of amenities, from six indoor tennis courts to a 25-meter Olympic pool to a spa that is home to six styles of massage. Out of all the sports available at the multi-sport facility, the coaching team specializes in tennis and golf. Racket-wielders can perfect their serves and back-hands in private lessons, beginners’ clinics, and group drills. Meanwhile, golfers train during camps, jaunts in the golf simulator, and with K-vest three-dimensional analysis, which helps clients optimize their swings and stop bribing their ball before each game. An array of workout classes rounds out the gym’s offerings, covering modalities such as Pilates, yoga, and tai-chi.
