Coaching and Cardio Tennis
We have had great feedback from players doing Cardio Tennis so get your team together for a fun and productive hour of team coaching! Individual lessons also available.
Not confident with your volleys? Cardio tennis is a great session to practice and improve your volley game!
Cardio Tennis – Fridays 10am-11am
Cardio Tennis is a series of tennis-based drills and activities. It is a great way to improve your game and at the same time your fitness. Cardio Tennis is a great workout targeted at improving balance, speed and agility. Every session includes a warm-up, cardio workout, and cool down phases. If you are looking for a great new way to get in shape and to burn calories, why not try Cardio Tennis?
Cost $60 for six weeks. Min. 6 persons. Sessions taken by Emerson.
Please remember priority is given to people who book – if the coaches know in advance the numbers will be high then they can arrange a second coach to help out. Gaps will be filled on a first in first served basis but the session is limited to 8 people per coach.
So to avoid disappointment and to enable the coaches to meet the demand please book in advance.
Beginner/Back To Tennis Players
If you are interested in coaching sessions either group or individual please contact us.
