LESSONS ARE KEY!
Get in Lessons ASAP. Learning tennis is best done one on one. You will get so much enjoyment out of Tennis when you learn the specifics on how to play. Learning on the B team is ok, but it rarely leads to good competitive play. Getting one-on-one lessons is going to help you fully enjoy the game as well as be competitive.
We have a good relationship with MSU’s Tennis Program! I’ll post name here and in Remind of other instructors/coaches that can do individual and group lessons.
Contacts for Lessons:
Cole Duty (WA’s Asst Tennis Coach): 803 -7619
Sachin Kirtane AKA “Shaq” (MSU Assistant Coach): 662-418-9352 or Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sachin.kirtane.3,He does indoor and outdoor so weather is not a factor! He can also take 2 at a time which splits the cost (usually around $50, so it would be $25 for each)…and that’s not bad! In one individual session, you get the equivalent of a month’s worth of group/team training.
