According to scientists at the University of Illinois, because tennis requires players to stay alert and think tactically, the sport may generate new connections between nerves in the brain and promote continuing brain development. Lindner Tennis Center at Lunken does its part to keep minds and bodies healthy by offering tennis instruction for adults and kids and organizing various leagues and tournaments.
Its eight hard courts and eight clay courts host a city-wide ladder league, 12 United States Tennis Association adult and junior tournaments. They also offer camps for kids, instruction led by USPTA professionals, weekly social events, and other enriching tennis activities for the entire family.
Although Laurel Hill Swim & Tennis Club has amassed a high concentration of USPTA-certified instructors, they share their expertise with more than just professional players. Tennis 101 classes taught on both indoor and outdoor courts, impart beginners with the fundamentals of forehands, backhands, and net play and cardio tennis develops proper footwork while vanquishing calories. Serious competitors and novice players alike benefit from the Club’s variety of surface types. Four synthetic grass courts simulate the grassy grounds at the Wimbledon and har-tru courts replicate courts used during the French Open and hard surfaces replicate courts used at the U.S. and Australian Opens.
Long Island native Rocco Cona has had a tennis racket in his hand since the age of 11. His unyielding infatuation with the sport motivated him to go pro, win the Kidel Cup in 1983 as part of a doubles team, and found Springside Racquet & Fitness Club in 1988. Within the family-friendly facility, Cona leads a team of certified trainers and accomplished sports instructors as it whips athletes of all ages into shape with tennis, soccer, and swimming lessons. When the gang isn't busy perfecting backhand slices, bicycle kicks, and breaststrokes, it's hosting body-toning fitness and aerobics classes, such as kickboxing, spinning, and granite-statue-wrestling. They also offer custom personal-training sessions, in which they pump up heart rates with Cybex resistance equipment, Bodymaster free weights, and elliptical cross-trainers.
Springside's facility houses a cushioned indoor track as well as tennis and parquet courts, an NBA-size basketball court, and soccer fields that are available for recreational use. The community center's staff includes trained professionals certified in CPR and well versed in tantrum mediation techniques for when they watch over youngsters in the playroom.
There's seldom a silent moment at Dayton Center Courts and Tennis Academy. Ten indoor courts and four outdoor clay courts reverberate with the metronomic sound of baseline rallies and shuffling feet. On these courts, players of all abilities—ranging from "casual" to "serious" to "advanced"—take advantage of instructional clinics and lessons or they can join a league to get more match play. Kids as young as 4 begin their path to aces and winners in the junior program, which uses modern training techniques such as custom balls that make it easier for youngsters to learn proper mechanics. Ball machines facilitate independent practice sessions, and a pro shop equips players with new rackets, shoes, and strings, which make air-guitar sessions look more realistic.
