Tennis 201 builds on the basic skills learned at Tennis 101 and introduces the player to basic strategy, spins (on groundstrokes and serves) and advanced strokes such as lobs and overheads. Time will be set aside during the session for match play, where an experienced instructor will guide students on placement, scorekeeping, etc. Participants must be over the age of 18. These low-cost clinics run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturdays from May through August, at many venues throughout the state. Players will be encouraged to create teams that will eventually compete in a beginner-level USTA league in the Treasure Valley!
Our goal is to make tennis easily accessible and affordable to anyone who wants to participate. A session for an individual is $10, while the cost for a family (up to four individuals) is $25. If you choose to participate in Tennis 101 for the entire month, the cost is $35 for an individual and $60 for a family (up to four individuals). ALL EQUIPMENT, CURRICULUM, AND INSTRUCTORS ARE PROVIDED.
The goal of Tennis 101 is to introduce, or re-introduce, adults and children to the game of tennis so that they will ultimately join other tennis programs organized by our partner CTA's and Organization Members. The program also acts as a pipeline of players into our Adult Leagues program as people become enthusiastic about tennis and want to keep growing in the sport. In 2012, our Tennis 101 program was conducted at 14 sites throughout the state and we are looking to kick-off the program at additional sites in 2013.
