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 three one-hour group tennis lessons at TennisTip Miami (a $105 value). This Groupon is good for the Brickell Avenue location in downtown Miami.
Since 2003, the aces at TennisTip have kept thousands of rackets slicing with a custom group curriculum designed for novices looking to land their first lobs in an engaging and social setting. With a full schedule of one-hour lessons, bashful backhanders can improve their game amid like-minded players during each session, which boasts a low, 4:1 student-teacher ratio. The program is intended for folks ages 14 and older, with instruction-based and play-based programs designed around student skill levels.
Not only do these cardio-building courses bring beginners up to speed but TennisTip also forges friendship wristband swaps through camaraderie-building group instruction, along with its find-a-partner program that pairs up players with formidable opponents much more sociable than the garage wall. TennisTip also sports one of the only tennis programs in the US with fulltime, on-court ball-people who huddle near the net, ready to spring for fuzz-covered, mislobbed shots like Velcro vultures thirsting for felt.
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.
