Adult Tennis

 

VRSTC’s Adult Tennis Program is open to Members and Non-Members. Whether you’ve never picked up a racquet before or tennis is your racket, tennis is an incredible lifetime sport. Not only does it help in developing balance and coordination, it’s a terrific workout (think toned arms, shoulders, legs, and core muscle groups). All you need is a racquet, and a good pair of tennis shoes (please make sure your shoes don’t leave any marks on the court!). Tennis balls are provided. Coach Ron will show you a great time on the court.

Clinics

Adult Tennis Clinics will be offered every Saturday morning, beginning at 9 a.m. starting Saturday, May 26 and run to mid-October depending on weather. Adult Tennis Clinics will consist of 1 to 1½ hours of “skills and drills” with basic instruction on technique and strategy.

Beginning players start at 9 a.m. and will run for 1 hour. This workout is for the beginner that needs to learn the basics of tennis, including introduction to strokes, footwork, court positioning for singles and doubles. If you’re looking to get back into tennis shape, learn new skills, or just have some FUN, this is the class for you. Play mini games with instructions from the pro.

Intermediate players start at 10 a.m. and will run for 1 ½ hours. This workout is for the intermediate to advanced player who is working on developing their strokes and tennis strategy. Instruction is more tailored to the needs of the students who attend.

Advanced players will start at 12 p.m. and will run for 1 ½ hours. This workout is for the advanced player who is working on developing their strokes and tennis strategy. Instruction is more tailored to the needs of the students who attend.

Sign up using the Tennis Activity Book at the pool office or Coach Ron.

Flights

We would like to invite all VRSTC adult tennis players (Members Only) to join in the fun of a tennis flight! A tennis flight is competitive doubles play with an 8-game round robin format (switch partners after 8 games) for a total of 24 games. Flights are organized by skill level, and have three seasons: Spring (May-June), Summer (July-August), and Fall (September-October). Plan on contacting flight captains early the month before the flights are to begin. (Spring flights by mid-April, for instance.)

 

Skill levels are defined as follows:

  • Level C: Beginner
  • Level B: Intermediate
  • Level A: Advanced

There is no formal tryout; we ask that members use their judgment in placing themselves at the appropriate skill level. Flights are only open to club members. Below is the list of flight organizers. Please contact them and “get in the game”!

Monday (A) & Tuesday (A & B) evenings.

Women’s Mixed (A, B, & C) Flights
