Adult Tennis


VRSTC’s Adult Tennis Program is open to Members and Non-Members. Whether you’ve never picked up a racquet before or tennis is your racket, tennis is an incredible lifetime sport. Not only does it help in developing balance and coordination, it’s a terrific workout (think toned arms, shoulders, legs, and core muscle groups). All you need is a racquet, and a good pair of tennis shoes (please make sure your shoes don’t leave any marks on the court!). Tennis balls are provided. Coach Ron will show you a great time on the court.

Lesson Times and Descriptions:

8 a.m. – 9 a.m. BEGINNER… You have limited experience and are working primarily on getting the ball in play. You lack court experience and your strokes need developing. You are familiar with the basic positions for singles and doubles play. You are learning to judge where the ball is going, although your court coverage is limited. You can sustain a short rally (2-3 shots) of slow pace with other players of the same ability.

9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. INTERMEDIATE … NTRP 3.0 - 3.5 You have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots but need to develop depth and variety. You exhibit more aggressive net play, have improved court coverage and are developing teamwork in doubles. You can sustain a short rally (4-6 shots) of slow to moderate pace with other players of the same ability.

10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE… NTRP 3.5 You have dependable strokes, including directional control, depth, power, and spin on both forehand and backhand sides on moderate-paced shots. You can use lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success and occasionally force errors when serving. Rallies may be lost due to impatience. Teamwork and aggressive net play in doubles is evident. You can sustain a short rally (6-8 shots) of moderate pace with other players of the same ability.

12 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. ADVANCED… NTRP 3.5 - 4.0+ In addition to the description listed in the 3.5 section you have developed your use of power and spin and can handle pace. You have sound footwork, can control depth of shots, and attempt to vary game plan according to your opponents. You can hit first serves with power and accuracy and place the second serve. You tend to overhit on difficult shots. Teamwork and aggressive net play is common in doubles. You can sustain a short rally (8-10 shots) with pace with other players of the same ability.

We will be focusing on the “DOUBLES PLAYBOOK” for our Intermediate and Advanced clinics.  The “DOUBLES PLAYBOOK’ was developed by Will Hamilton and is based on the winning strategies of Martina Navratilova, Gigi Fernandez and the Bryan Brothers. Clinics will consist of skills and drills and play instruct with on court coaching. I’m happy to announce that coaches Austin Gu and Sedona Gallagher will be returning this summer.

 We would like to invite all VRSTC adult tennis players (Members Only) to join in the fun of a tennis flight! A tennis flight is competitive doubles play with an 8-game round robin format (switch partners after 8 games) for a total of 24 games. Flights are organized by skill level, and have three seasons: Spring (May-June), Summer (July-August), and Fall (September-October). Plan on contacting flight captains early the month before the flights are to begin. (Spring flights by mid-April, for instance.)  

Please see the Rules and Policies page for rules on flight play.

Skill levels are defined as follows:

  • Level C: Beginner
  • Level B: Intermediate
  • Level A: Advanced

There is no formal tryout; we ask that members use their judgment in placing themselves at the appropriate skill level. Flights are only open to club members. Below is the list of flight organizers. Please contact them and “get in the game”!
