How Many Tennis Lessons Do I Need?

Looking to take some tennis lessons in Wilmington, DE to learn the sport or improve your game? You're in the right spot!

PlayYourCourt is the easiest way to take tennis lessons in Wilmington, DE so you can get better (and beat your friends :)!

We get asked all the time, “How many tennis lessons do I need?” Although each person varies, our baseline recommendation is between 6-12 lessons.

PlayYourCourt coaches giving tennis lessons in Wilmington will customize your lesson package to fit your tennis goals and learning style, but here is what a general package would look like:

"The Next Level" - 6 Lesson Package:
If you want to learn the basics and sharpen technique to boost your game to the next level, our 6 lesson package is for you.

Lesson 1: Forehand
In your first lesson, you will learn the most common shot in the game: the forehand. A forehand is the shot that you hit on the dominant side of your body (the side that you hold the racket in.)

Lesson 2: Backhand
The shot you will learn next is the backhand. The backhand is a shot hit on the non-dominant side of your body (the left side for righties) and is generally hit with two hands on the racket.

Lesson 3: Volleys
A volley is a shot that is hit before the ball bounces on your side of the court. It is a very common shot in doubles, and a very helpful shot in singles.

Lesson 4: Serve
The serve is the shot that starts the point and is necessary to master if you plan to play any matches or competitive tennis.

Lesson 5: Return of Serve
The return of serve is equally as important as the serve itself, but is often overlooked. You'll also learn the strategy involved and footwork.

Lesson 6: Rallying
This is the lesson you have been waiting for! You will bring everything that you have learned in the first 5 lessons together to hit every type of shot in match-play scenarios.
