Frequently Asked Questions


What is the structure of a beginner tennis lesson?

Over the course of your first few beginner tennis lessons there are a few key skills and techniques you will cover. From proper stance and grips to the basics of serve and swing path of groundstrokes, you will get a crash course in tennis in a time and manner that suits you as a student best.


Do I need to have any prior experience or knowledge of tennis to take beginner tennis lessons?

No, of course not! If you have only ever played tennis once or twice or never picked up a racquet, there is a coach out there for you. As long as you have a willingness to learn and commit to getting better, anyone can take lessons. Remember, everyone progresses at different rates so be patient and have communication with your coach if you find you are at all frustrated during lessons.


Does every tennis coach work with beginners?

No, not every coach does. Some coaches will work only with more advanced players, like juniors or aspiring pros, and others prefer not to work with kids who are often beginners. You should always look at reviews and preferences on a coaches online profile to ensure you are signing up with a coach that is interested in working with beginners. In general, most coaches are willing to and there are a select few who do not.


Are there opportunities for beginner players to practice and play with others of a similar skill level?

If you would feel more comfortable playing with someone of a similar skill level, you can always have a friend or two of the same skill level join a lesson with you. If they are of the same skill level then the lesson can still be curtailed to beginners without losing that hands on approach from your coach. Also, if you advance past beginner level, you can always sign up for a local league in your area like the Tennis League Network.


Will I have to change coaches once I've gained some experience?

In most cases, no. A coach who is able to work with beginners will also be adept at working with intermediate players as well. Most coaches will have the awareness to adjust lessons accordingly, but if you feel like you want to try more advanced drills, be sure to have a discussion with your coach about making a change.
