Aston Park JUNIOR Beginner / Beginner Plus Clinics

Age and skill appropriate instruction for a mixed clinic of beginner & beginner plus juniors.

Enrollment: 6 to 8 students

BEGINNERS:

  • Players just starting to play tennis

  • Players that have limited experience with stroke development and is still working on getting the ball into play. This player is not yet ready to compete.

BEGINNER PLUS:

  • Players need on-court experience with emphasis on play. These players struggle to find an appropriate contact point, need stroke development/lessons and are not yet familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles.

  • Players are learning to judge where the oncoming ball is going and how much swing is needed to return it consistently. Movement to the ball and recovery are often not efficient. Can sustain a backcourt rally of slow pace with other players of similar ability and are beginning to develop strokes. These players are becoming more familiar with the basic positions for singles and doubles, and are ready to play social matches, leagues and low-level tournaments.

Aston Park Junior Intermediate Clinics

Age and skill appropriate instruction for intermediate juniors.

Enrollment 6 to 10 students

  • Players are fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but are not comfortable with all strokes and lack accuracy when trying for directional control, depth, pace or altering distance of shots. Most common doubles formation is one up, one back.

  • Players have achieved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but still lack depth, variety and the ability to alter the distance of shots. The effective use of lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys is limited. Players are more comfortable at the net, have improved court awareness, and are developing teamwork in doubles.

Who: 7-17 year olds

When: Tuesdays and Thursdays, August 13 through August 29

Where: Aston Park Tennis Center

Cost: $50 for six sessions
