Adult Tennis Clinic Passes

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 Jeff will show you a great time on the court.

Adult Tennis Clinics - Summer 2024

Saturday Adult Tennis Clinics are happening this summer! Clinics begin June 1st and continue every Saturday of the summer. Clinics are 90 minutes long and we have three class levels – a Beginner (8am-9:30am), Beginner-Intermediate (9:30am-11am), and Intermediate clinic (11am-12:30pm). We will hold clinics on the south court and leave the north court open for casual play.

Clinic Descriptions:

BEGINNER (8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.): You have limited experience and are working primarily on getting the ball in play. You lack court experience, and your strokes need developing. You are familiar with the basic positions for singles and doubles play. You are learning to judge where the ball is going, although your court coverage is limited. You can sustain a short rally (2-3 shots) of slow pace with other players of the same ability.

BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE (9:30a.m. – 11a.m.) NTRP 2.5-3.0: You have been playing for 2+ years. Fairly consistent when hitting slow/medium-paced shots, but is not comfortable with all strokes just yet. Will continue to develop directional control, depth or power execution.

INTERMEDIATE (11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) NTRP 3.0 – 3.5: You have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots but need to develop depth and variety. You exhibit more aggressive net play, have improved court coverage and are developing teamwork in doubles. You can sustain a short rally (4-6 shots) of slow to moderate pace with other players of the same ability.


For each 90 minute clinic, the format will be broken into something like this:

  • 10 minutes warm-up
  • 3-5 minutes welcome in & theme intro
  • 20-25 minutes instructional theme drilling
  • 10 minutes serve warm-ups and 1 tip of the day.
  • 30 minutes of live ball or point play focusing on theme.

**NEW SIGN UP PROCESS  Clinic registration is now enabled online on our website’s tennis court reservation grid! (see links below for specific dates) No drop ins.

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.)

Please see the Rules and Policies page for rules on flight play.

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”!
