This class will have a student hitting a tennis ball on the first day of class despite their current athletic ability. Younger children will learn coordination skills of catching and hitting while the more experienced will learn how to hit topspin, aim at targets, and rally with other players. The main focus for this class is for the kids to have fun playing a game that they can play their entire life.
This program is run by teaching professionals from the Salt Lake Tennis & Health Club who specialize in teaching youth ages 4-18 and follows the program and book written by David Archer "Eight Weeks to a Lifetime of Tennis." For students wanting to compete, a Junior Grand Prix Tournament (for ages 12 and under) takes place at the club once a month.
