  • Where will the lessons take place?

    Your coach will come to any court of your choice. Not sure of the closest court? No sweat, they will recommend a convenient location.
  • How do I know I’ll love my coach?

    We ask you questions and hand pick the perfect coach based on what you are looking for. We are so confident in our coach selection process that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If we can’t find the perfect instructor for you then we will refund your unused lesson credits.
  • Can I start with just one lesson?

    You sure can, although we offer a 100% money back guarantee so most students start with a lesson package to save money since there is no risk.
  • How do I get in contact with my instructor?

    Once you have booked your lesson package, you will immediately receive your instructor's contact information. The quickest way to schedule your first lesson is to call or text your coach and they'll get back to you asap. If your coach doesn't hear from you they'll reach out within 24 hours.
  • I’ve never played before, do you work with beginners?

    Absolutely! Our certified instructors regularly work with players of all ages and ability levels.
  • Can I bring a friend?

    Absolutely! Each extra person is only an additional $10 more per hour. Adding friends to your lesson is a great way to cut down on your lesson costs.
