The cost of private tennis lessons can vary depending on factors such as location, level of instruction, and the coach's experience. On average, private tennis lessons are between $45-$65/hr but again, there are many factors when it comes to prices in your area. Package deals and discount codes will also help in reducing the hourly cost of private lessons. It's a good idea to research and compare prices of coaches in your area before committing to lessons.
Depending on what you want to get out of your tennis lessons, should inform your decision on how often to get out on the court. Whether you are a beginner who wants to learn tennis quickly or you are a more advanced player getting ready for a tournament, buying more lessons up front for less per hour might be best. If you just want to try out tennis lessons a smaller lesson package will allow you to try out lessons once or twice a week before committing to more.
Private tennis lessons are the best way to up your game as a tennis player because you have the chance to get 1-on-1 instruction from a qualified tennis coach. A private tennis lesson is a chance to soak up valuable information, get as many reps as possible, and form a relationship with a coach fully invested in your improvement. A group lesson can help you to learn some basics, spend time with friends, and allow you to get a feel for the game of tennis but often does not replicate private lessons from a development standpoint.
It is never too late to start tennis lessons! No matter what age you are, tennis is accessible for anyone. Tennis can be great for kids, former athletes looking to get into something new, someone who is trying to get more active, or anyone in between. Tennis lessons allow you to make mistakes and feel comfortable as a first time tennis player, no matter your age.
You can start tennis lessons at any age or skill level. If you are looking to get your child into tennis most coaches will say if they are able to hold a racquet it is early enough for tennis lessons. Like with most activities, the earlier a child starts playing tennis, the better they will become if they choose to play competitively. But players start playing tennis at various ages and age is no barrier to entry to becoming a solid, or even great, tennis player.
Beginner tennis players will be set up for success as long as they have tennis shoes, athletic wear, and a water bottle. If you do not have a tennis racquet you can discuss your options of borrowing one with your coach but eventually it is best that you purchase a beginner tennis racquet right for you. You will want one not only at lessons but so you can play tennis outside of your lessons. Eventually, once you know you will be playing a lot of tennis you will want a tennis bag with various gear but it is not necessary as a beginner tennis player.
- Athletic shoes you know are comfortable for running around in
- Athletic clothing you are comfortable running around and sweating in
- Your tennis racquet
- A filled water bottle
- A hat depending on how sunny it is and any other weather specific clothes, ie a sweatshirt or leggings for chillier weather
- Not required, but many players will bring a towel or sweatbands to wipe sweat

Aidan is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor. He takes as much time as necessary to make sure everyone understands the strategies & techniques he teaches in his lessons, and knows exactly what to do to set someone up for success! We have never been in a lesson that was equivalent to the amount of focus Aidan puts into the foundation of the sport. His dedication to the sport truly is shown through his positive approach to the goal for each lesson, and because of this we would definitely recommend him for anyone interested in learning tennis!- Kathleen K.
