Tennis lessons can be booked at the Walker Complex Welcome Desk
Available for beginner and experienced players from age 6 and up, our tennis lesson packages are the perfect way to refine your game or learn the fundamentals to get started with. With the expert instruction an accomplished player and coach, boasting two former National championship titles and Tennis Canada’s ‘Coach of the Year’ accolades, you can be sure that you’ll be gaining the know-how you need, regardless of your ability or experience level.
Beginners of all ages (6 and up) will receive basis tennis instruction which will include: forehand and backhand ground-strokes (including the one-handed and two-handed backhand), volley, and serve. As well, you will learn proper grips, footwork, basic tactics, rules of the game, advice on proper equipment and how to score. Depending on your level and age, you will also learn about specialty shots such as the lob, overhead and half-volley. Tennis will be taught in a fun, yet challenging manner to take you to the next level. Eye-hand coordination drills and games will be included.
Intermediate Players will also receive instruction on all aspects of the game as described for beginners but at a more advanced level and with the purpose of also correcting any improper 'swing' motions and footwork issues. Advice on tactics/strategy will be incorporated into the lessons during fun game situations and drills. Extra attention will put focus on the serve: slice, topspin, flat; and the slice backhand.
Lessons are available for individuals, semi-private, and groups of three or four people. (Please note, for semi-private and group lessons, you must book as a group. Fees quoted will cover the total number of participants in your lesson.)
