Tennis players love their own racquets! We get it. However, it is STRONGLY suggested you wait to buy a racquet of your own until after a few classes. Let us help you figure out the correct size and fit! We have plenty of racquets to use when starting out!
Something comfortable to move in and relative to the time of year. Hats or visors are great protection from the heat or to keep your head warm in the winter. Sunblock, sunblock, sunblock!
Again, shoes that you can move in! No flip flops, sandals, high heels, boots, etc. In the beginning sneakers are fine. You may want to consider actual tennis shoes if you plan on playing a lot! They have the perfect soles to allow for movement on the court.
A big bottle of water and your wonderful personality! Tennis is fun!
For the safety of everyone, only the player(s) and coach are permitted on the tennis court. Parents are welcome to stay and watch your student(s) learn tennis. We do ask that you let us coach during the lesson. Don't worry. We will give them back to you after their lesson! Tennis lessons will also include "I am a good sport behaviors":
We also encourage parents to occasionally bring a book, find a spot in the park and let your student do their lesson without you watching.
