Adult Tennis

AHSTC offers tennis lessons for adults, ranging from beginner to advanced. 

2024 Adult Lesson

Beginner | This class is for players with little to no tennis experience. We cover basics of footwork, groundstrokes, volleys and serves.

Advanced Beginner | This class is for players who have taken the beginner class or have some tennis experience, but are not ready for match play. We will expand on the fundamentals of the beginner class with a focus on match readiness.

Adult 2.5 | In this class, players should be familiar with all tennis strokes and play matches but struggle with consistency and control.

Adult 3.0 | Players have played for several years and can use all tennis strokes reliably but struggle with difficult shots and effective tactics.
