 The men’s or ladies drills are designed so that players of all skill levels are sure to hit lots of balls, have lots of fun, and get a wonderful workout. Each drill session ends with a fun game, and even if you don't like any of the other activities, this one will surely have you coming back for more.

Fit Tennis
Fit tennis is our version of “Cardio Tennis”. It is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best features of the sport of tennis with cardiovascular exercise - delivering the ultimate, full body, calorie burning aerobic workout. It is a very social and fun class for players of all ability levels taught by a tennis teaching professional. If you’ve never played tennis before, it is a great way to be introduced to the sport and if you are an experienced high level tennis player, it is the best way to train for tennis. Most classes have mixed ability and some facilities offer classes which are more specific to ability/fitness level. Regardless of ability or fitness level, the tennis professional is trained to provide the ultimate workout for each person.
