Like spinach, tennis lessons imbue people with energy and are especially powerful when eaten straight from the can. Pump up swinging and/or sailing arms with today's Groupon to Yorkville Tennis Club on York Avenue. Choose between the following options:
- For $95, you get one-hour private lesson for adults (up to a $190 value).
- For $470, a child aged 3 to 6 gets Pee Wee Tennis weekly group lessons, for a duration of about one to two months depending on session (a $940 value).
For years, Yorkville Tennis Club has honed racquet-swinging skills for adults and youngsters alike in its year-round facility. Adult instruction covers a litany of critical areas, including stroke analysis, shot development, and how to make a purse out of used tennis balls. Perfect your doubles or singles strategy with a private lesson on one of two indoor courts, made from the same kind of deco-turf surfaces used in the U.S. Open. Those without their own racquets can rent one from Yorkville for $10, or forge a makeshift model using dental floss and pinecones.
Kids aged 3 to 6 can participate in Pee Wee Tennis—more likely to better their bodies than video games about athletes playing Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing. Classes typically don't exceed five students, ensuring individualized attention from the instructors, who use positive reinforcement to encourage beneficial behaviors. Lessons include balls and racquets, with adjustable sizing depending on the size of the child. Slots are available Monday through Thursday at 3 p.m., Fridays at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2 p.m., and Sundays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
TimeOut New York named Yorkville Tennis Club one of the Best Tennis Courts in New York.
Yorkville Tennis Club
Located inside a doorman apartment building on the Upper East Side, Yorkville Tennis Club hosts matches in climate-controlled luxury. A bubble protects the two full-sized courts year-round, ensuring guests' comfort as they serve and volley atop the same Deco Turf used in the U.S. Open. Locker rooms with showers make it easy to clean up after a match, and a small pro shop with racquet-stringing services helps keep equipment in shape. Pee-wee leagues and youth classes help kids ages 3 to 17 build tennis skills, self confidence, and healthy bodies; for older students, private lessons and adult clinics offer a chance to master specific techniques under expert instruction.
