Enjoy playing on surfaces you won't find just anywhere!  Har-tru is a green colored crushed stone that plays just like a clay surface.  It is a slower surface to play on and it's nice and easy on the knees!  Omni or artificial grass plays very similar to a grass surface.  The play is faster and the ball skips off the surface.  Relax in the shaded patio area in between playing. Fresh ice cold water is provided daily.

Beginners: Learn Basic strokes - forehand, backhands, serves, volleys, foot work, rules, score keeping, and the history of the game.  Children - play various games designed to be fun, while using the skills they have learned.

Intermediate: Work on all fundamentals, strategy, foot work, and competitions.  Begin learning specialty shots:  spin serves, top spin, ground-strokes and lobs, overheads, slices, etc.

Advanced: Work on consistency, fundamentals, strategy, foot work, more competition, perfection of specialty shots.
