I enjoy a student's desire to learn, take initiative to practice and continue to be teachable. It's important for me to instill to the student that Tennis offers a lifetime of enjoyment and sense of community. It offers fun and meaningful relationships in life. There are many things that you can learn on the court, that translate into life The best stuff is the smile and excitement of the student when they get it right. Tennis has been in my life ever since I learned in college. I worked (2-3) hours outside of practice to achieve my level. Tennis is a gateway to learning more about life and about building relationships, that last. Coachi...

I have a deep understanding of how to make a truly efficient stroke from scratch, as well as the nuances of how footwork, body positioning, and using the natural flow of your momentum creates power and control. Less is more, an effortless basic stroke and efficient movement will elevate every dimension of your game. I teach my students how to see the court in 3D instead of just a baseline game. I stress the importance of a strong mental game, because no matter how pretty your technique is, that is the determining factor between winning and losing. Finally, I want to impart on my students the joy of competing, and the thrilling personal growth...

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?

Alix T.
Irvin is a great coach. He’s a true student of the game and will teach you not only how to hit the ball but also how to play tennis. He cares about his students and will go the extra mile to help you develop. He makes every lesson fun while still working on improving your technique. I highly recommend him whether you are just learning to play or if you are an advanced player wanting to improve your skills.

Mr. Brooks is a great tennis instructor. His lessons are fun and productive. Within 10 minutes he had me hitting consistent backhands, which is the weakest part of my game. I look forward to my next lesson with Mr. Brooks. We are working in my serve.
