Athletic Club Adult Tennis Programs & Drills
Adult Tennis Program Descriptions
Beginner estimated 2.5 Level….
This player is learning to judge where the ball is going on the court.
Although court coverage is weak they can sustain a short rally of slower pace
with other players of same ability.
Advance Beginner estimated 3.0 Level…..
This player is fairly consistent when hitting medium paced shots, but is not
comfortable with all strokes and lacks execution when trying for directorial
control, depth, or power. Most common doubles formation is one-up one-back.
Intermediate estimated 3.5 Level….
This player has achieved improved stroke dependability with directional
control on moderate shots, but still lacks depth and variety. This
player exhibits more aggressive net play, has improved court coverage, and is
developing teamwork in doubles.
Advance estimated 4.0 Level….
You have dependable strokes, including directional control and depth on both
forehand and backhand sides on moderate-paced shots. You can use lobs,
overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success and occasionally
force errors when serving. Rallies may be lost due to impatience.
Teamwork in doubles is evident.
