The emphasis for classes will be on quality instruction that will help our students improve their tennis games as well as a fun atmosphere that will let students of all ages enjoy their time on the court and look forward to the next lesson. Make-ups for missed classes will be limited to 2 per class per session and the front desk must be notified of the make-up at least 24 hrs ahead of time. Make-ups must be completed by the end of the session in which the student is enrolled. This is an effort to have the correct numbers of students in each class and to try to maintain the Pro:Student ratio as closely as possible.
