Erna N. says, "Coach Jay breaks everything down to basics and makes sure both youth and adult players have a solid foundation to build their skills. He is patient and insightful, encouraging, and supportive as he pushes each player to their full potential. He comes to watch players’s matches, and cheers them on. I only wish my son and I could have worked with him from the start! He keeps his hours flexible to accommodate his players. I always walk away from a lesson feeling like I have learned something new to make me a better player. Thank you Coach Jay for all your support!" Read more

I am USPTA Certified Professional and was accepted and currently finishing the USTA High Performance Coaching program which is for highly distinguished coaches. I was a Top Ranked Junior in new York and went on to earn a Division 1 Scholarship. I was also a hitting partner for National Players and lower level professionals on the east coast. I believe in my student and don't give up on them. Even if they feel desperate I encourage them to strive and continue on with patience. The goal is not about winning and losing it's about improvement. Continues improvement will eventually blossom into good results. When I see my students achieving a task...

Your Tennis Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do tennis lessons cost?

On average, tennis lessons cost $60 to $150 per hour or $200 to $500 for five 1-hour lessons. The cost to hire a tennis instructor depends on their experience level and the session length. Casual or beginner students may not need an instructor with a lot of experience, while students who want to play at a professional level will have to pay more for an experienced teacher. Most tennis lessons are 30 to 60 minutes long.

How many tennis lessons do I need?

How many tennis lessons you need depends on your experience level and why you're taking lessons. Casual players may only need 5 to 10 lessons total. Competitive players may need 50 to 100 lessons over the course of a year, or about 1 to 2 lessons per week.

Are tennis lessons worth it?

Tennis lessons are worth it whether you're a beginner or a professional for the following reasons:

  • They're fun and educational.
  • Almost anyone can improve their game by taking them.
  • They provide heart-healthy exercise.
  • They improve hand-eye coordination.
  • They help you master a skill that you will continue to enjoy for the rest of your life.

In order for beginners to enjoy tennis and feel proficient, they first have to master the basic techniques like serving and backhand strokes. More experienced players may benefit from learning advanced techniques and improve their enjoyment of the game. One-on-one instruction allows players to concentrate on their unique strengths and weaknesses and improve their skills.

What age do you start tennis lessons?

The best age to start tennis lessons for kids is between 5 to 10 years old, or when they are able to pay attention and follow instructions for 30 minutes or more. Kids who have been in other sports before typically do well, even at a young age. Adults can start tennis lessons at any age.

What do I wear to a tennis lesson?

Since you will be moving your arms and running during a tennis lesson, wear comfortable clothing or active wear. Public courts and parks do not require a dress code, but tennis clubs and country clubs typically require the following attire:

  • Tennis shoes or sneakers with non-marking soles
  • Polo shirts or tank top
  • Shorts or a skirt
  • A hat or visor

What are the different types of tennis lessons?

There are three different types of tennis lessons, each with different advantages:

  • Group lessons are best for beginners. Learning in a group also helps students learn from each other and become familiar with game play, rules, and techniques.
  • One-on-one lessons are helpful for more advanced students. Once students master the basics, they may want to take private lessons, which are the best way to strengthen skills and set personal goals.
  • Specialized lessons are great for people with special needs. These classes adapt lessons appropriately for groups or individuals with special needs.

How do I choose a tennis instructor?

Start by searching our list of tennis instructors, then:

  • Get at least three free estimates from tennis instructors to compare.
  • Examine reviews from previous or current students on Lessons and Google.
  • Choose an experienced, friendly instructor.
  • Follow a payment schedule instead of making large cash payments up front.

What questions should I ask tennis instructors?

To find the best tennis instructor near you, ask the following questions:

  • How long have you been playing tennis? Have you played professionally?
  • Do you have any openings? If not, how far in advance are you booked?
  • Would you recommend group or private lessons for me?
  • Do you offer discounts for referrals or couples?
  • Will you give me an estimate for lessons in writing?

It was great how passionate and excited the trainers were and their dedication to help you reach your goals. I trained for 3 months and it was totally worth it. I was even able to do some cool outdoor workouts with my trainer just to mix things up and when the weather was nice.

Ayush N.
First off, he is a very good tennis coach. He doesn’t just feed you balls during class, he does certain drills that are effective and help you fix your technique. I would know because up until a couple weeks ago, I couldn’t serve properly and now I’m probably serving the best i’ve ever served in my whole life. He taught the correct technique and whenever he tells me to fix something on technique it always makes me better. This is why I love going to classes and love improving my self every class when he is my coach.

I had a great experience with Illya. He improved my game so much. My forehand and backhand are very clean and consistent now. My serve is on another level. I improved my game so much only in 5 lessons. Thank you Illya

Amazing instructor! I've been taking tennis lessons with Andre for a while now, and I've seen significant improvement in my game. His teaching style is patient, encouraging, and highly effective. He breaks down complex techniques into simple steps, making it easy for beginners like me to grasp. I look forward to each class and feel more confident playing with friends now! Highly recommend!"
