For those interested in December lessons, we’ll have an abbreviated THREE WEEK session, see dates below. Let me know if your student is interested!
The next four week session will run as follows:
DECEMBER 1 – DECEMBER 17
(expected to resume JANUARY 6th)
BEGINNER/ADVANCED BEGINNER CLINIC
3:15 – 4:15 pm, Mondays
3:00 – 4:00 pm, Wednesdays
Ages 6 – 10
This clinic is for players new to tennis, or those not yet able to hit from the baseline. Clinics will go over the basics of the game of tennis (parts of the court and scoring), introduce forehands, backhands and serving, and work on eye-hand coordination and agility. Clinic is for up to 6 players. DECEMBER COST: $30 for just Mondays OR Wednesdays, ($55 for both days). Payment by check is made to the GWTA (Greater Wilmington Tennis Association).
4:15 to 5:45 pm, Wednesdays
Ages 8 – 14
The intermediate/advanced clinic is for players who are rallying and serving from the baseline, and may be interested in or already playing on a middle school team. Students will continue to work on all aspects of the game as well as sportsmanship and match-play. They will also be guided through more competitive outlets such as tournaments and junior team tennis (May – July season). Clinic is for up to 8 players. DECEMBER COST: $38. Payment by check is made to the GWTA (Greater Wilmington Tennis Association).*
PRIVATE OR SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS
Available Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
COST: $28 (private), $15 (per student, semi-private)

If a clinic is cancelled due to rain, we will try and make it up the following Friday afternoon. If that is not possible, or if you are not able to come to that make-up, I will reimburse your charge for that day (or apply it the next month if you’re continuing). If your player misses a clinic due to illness or for any other reason, there is no reimbursement, as I’m not able to fill spots on a week-by-week basis. Thanks!
