"I love the convenience of PlayYourCourt. The nearest tennis club is almost 30 minutes away, but now I can get lessons and play matches right in my neighborhood."
Tina Bingham Virginia Beach, VA
"I am so glad I found PlayYourCourt, my instructor Richard is fabulous! I was a newbie to tennis and knew absolutely nothing, but after taking lessons I am now playing in a beginner league. Coach Rich has really inspired me to take my game to another level."
Juanita Morning Atlanta, GA
"We have been really happy with PlayYourCourt and very lucky to have found our instructor Jim. My son Jacob is developing into a real tennis player and it has been so much fun to see. It's an extra bonus that all of his lessons are just down the street."

Tennis Lessons for Adults: Achieve Multiple Goals
At PlayYourCourt.com, we look for well-rounded coaches who understand that adult tennis players have different needs and goals than juniors, and who can structure lessons accordingly.
How Adults Improve at Tennis
Unlike junior players, adults usually aren’t looking to add completely new skills unless they are beginners. Adults who take lessons are often trying to improve what they already have.
A good adult lesson will start with the coach and student playing points to recreate and identify the player’s match-play needs. The coach and player will then work together to solve the playing problems with stroke work. Adult tennis lessons take into account that grownups aren't as active as kids, so practices include the right type of warmup, adequate breaks and a post-workout cooldown and stretch.
Adult Tennis Lesson Goals
Don’t be afraid to tell your coach all of the goals for your lessons. Qualified coaches want to make the lesson the best possible experience for you and will emphasis the aspects of a tennis lesson you want. Consider working on the following skills:
Footwork – learn how to get to the ball with proper balance
Depth – learn how to hit short angles, deep drives, drop shots ad lobs
Direction – learn how to hit to the backhand, forehand and into the body
Spins – learn how and when to hit flat, with slice and with topspin
Patterns – learn how to play two shots ahead to open the court and force errors
Power – the least important skill, but one that many adults want to learn first
