These sessions are led by a coach and held on the outdoor courts at Aberdeen Tennis Centre. They consist of conditioned games, point-play drills and organised singles and doubles match-play. Session themes are delivered according to the needs of the group. If there is anything in particular that you would like to work on, just let the coach know and they will aim to incorporate it into their plans.
These classes are split into two ability levels:
- Improver: Player can hold a basic rally, serve and return. Previous match play experience is helpful but not necessary.
- Advanced: Player has previous match play experience and a tactical understanding of how to win a point. Technically can control the direction of the serve with pace and spin. Consistent controlled return of serve and groundstrokes.
If you are unsure about your ability level then we recommend trying the Improver session and then the coach can move you into the advanced group if appropriate.
