Maybe you’re thinking, “I could never be good at tennis. Tennis players have beautiful long hair, and I’m just a sad, fat baldy.” Stop that negative thinking right this instant; Mr. Groupon has a story you need to hear. In America, anyone—you included—can ascend to the top. Tennis great Andre Agassi was once nothing more than a bald, fat kid who held a tennis racket like a snake holds a medicine ball. But after attending his first beginner tennis classes, he grew long locks, obtained rock-solid abs, married Brooke Shields, starred in brilliant commercials for Canon and Golden Grahams, and became admired by millions. These things can be yours too, but only with today’s Groupon for Tennis TIP. It is the only way.
Tennis TIP is offering three tennis lessons for $60—66% off the normal value of $180 and just $20 per lesson. You can attend one lesson a week for three consecutive weeks at any convenient location in Brooklyn, Greenwich Village, Midtown, the Upper East Side, Queens, and more. Students assess their skill level with the help of an instructor and are placed in appropriate group lessons. Tennis TIP’s website will even help you find a partner at your level of play. Whether you’re a complete beginner or a semi-pro, you’ll find the instruction you need to improve at Tennis TIP. Should you become a Tennis TIP member, you can also participate in its fitness programs, social events, online contests, giveaways, and more.
Tennis is a fun way to stay in shape and meet new people. While treadmill fitness can be social (if you participate in treadmill socials), it doesn’t come close to tennis in engaging your hand-eye coordination and competitive spirit. The social community around Tennis TIP makes everyone from beginners to pros feel welcomed. Check out Tennis TIP’s online lessons. Instructors include certified tennis pros Eric Metzger, Carl Barthold, Marina Zelenovic, and David Eddy (inventor of the Perfect Pick Up Tenn Tube Ball Retrieval System, which makes it easier to pick up tennis balls). You can also follow Tennis TIP founder and tennis pro, Brian Lutz, on his blog, The Slycer, and on Tennis TIP’s product reviews webpage.
Tennis TIP students are happy. Probably because they annihilate their opponents. Here are a few student reviews from LinkedIn: > * “Brian is an excellent tennis coach who worked patiently and diligently with me as a coach and quickly improved my skills. I would and have recommended him and his company, Tennis Tip, to everyone who has asked me about tennis.” - Tara Steppacher > * “TennisTip has resurrected my game and my competitive edge both in skills and attitude.

Since 1986, Brian Lutz has taught a panoply of tennis players how to improve their game and savor the sport's social aspect. Over time, he honed his teaching techniques and eventually devised his own tennis curriculum. In 2003, that curriculum inspired him to launch TennisTip, a program where experienced instructors help adults and teens improve their tennis game through self-discovery and fundamental skills.
TennisTip instructors work to provide hands-off guidance and gentle inspiration, letting students discover their best game through strategic practice. Combined with tennis-specific cardio exercises and an emphasis on social bonding, the regimen seeks to form independent, effective, and affable players out of every student. Since first starting up in the Big Apple, TennisTip has expanded to a second location, where pros instill students with courtside skills amid the warm Miami sun and attentive pelican ball boys.
