Adult Tennis

The schedule for the Fall 2019 has been released!

We run Fun Adult Starter Tennis (FAST) program which introduces the basic fundamentals of play as well as rules and scoring, to get the players to serve, rally and score. We use a new system of learning through progressions so tennis is easier and not as frustrating to learn. Please see below the schedule of Learn and Play sessions.

As the season progresses we will introduce more organized opportunities to play.

As usual, if you have 4 or more participants we can create a new group and put is in our permanent schedule. Please contact us at to arrange for a new group.

Please see below definitions for each of the levels and as we will be tailoring the programs to these. A more detailed rating guide is available here.
