Summer Tennis at the West End
Beginner Lessons 1.0-1.5
Just that. The fastest way to learn basic tennis skills and fundamentals. We get you right out to play, rally and score. Take the weekday, weekend or Tennis Express Program. Tennis Express and all Beginner Lessons introduce the basic fundamentals of play as well as rules and scoring, to get you to serve, rally and score. We use a system of teaching through progressions so tennis is easier, learned faster and play comes sooner.
This level is taught with a combination of slower moving low compression balls to insure the learning of the basics. Moving from Beginner to Novice will require 20 hours of practice so you are able to rally the Low Compression Green Ball 6-8 in a row with a partner at 3/4 court. You will also be working on developing a full service motion
Novice Lessons 2.0
You will have taken a Beginner Program or played the hit one over maybe two then pick it up game. You want to rally and keep the ball in play, serve and make the other person run around as much as you. Focus is on making new skills consistent and old habits resemble tennis strokes. Novice Level Programs introduce full court play. This level is played and taught with low compression balls that allow players to develop strokes and strategies at a slower and more rewarding environment. Moving from this level to Novice Plus 2.5-3.0 will take 20-25 hours of practice and play. To move onward-all is a journey you will and a partner will be able to rally 6-8 times in a row from the baseline. You will have a full service motion and be able to volley at the net.
Novice Plus 2.5-3.0
Looking at the previous level you will realize that hey, I am progressing, now what is next? Next is taking these fundamentals and learning to add topspin to your forehand, a spin to your serve and being consistent in your strokes-able to out last your partner or eventually your opponent. Evil tactics and strategies like planning and directing the serve and strokes in both singles and doubles play. Moving up to the next level-and it is a move up-requires practice and play time to become consistent in the strokes, serve and game play. While the time this takes for each player will vary another 40 to 50 hours outside of your lessons will get you where you want to be.
Every one who has played for at least two years feels they are at this level. Not!”
