This class will introduce younger kids to the joys of the sport, with simple ball/wall games incorporating hand to eye co-ordination, agility/flexibility, learning the geometry of the court, and all while exposing them to the fun of low-key competition. The focus will gradually shift toward developing rudimentary forehand and backhand mechanics with the racquet. Exercises will progress beyond basic strokes as fundamental skills are consistently demonstrated; volleys, boasts, drops and lobs are potential avenues to explore when players demonstrate a readiness for the challenges of more advanced tactics/techniques.
Participants must supply their own tennis racquet.
