Our coaches are young and very enthusiastic, all are qualified with ATPCA (Australian Tennis Professional Coaches Assoc), have Working with Children cards and all play competitive tennis as part of the Pennants Competition around Perth. I am also present at every session (first aid, toilet trips, ball picker-upper etc!!). We have a system of graded balls that have varying degrees of compression and size that the kids progress through as their skills improve. This lower compression decreases the bounce of the ball thus increasing the strike rate and the students’ confidence and success.
Our groups are loosely divided according to age and skill level, which becomes more apparent with the older kids. Each term will be allocated a number of lessons (more in warmer terms) leaving weeks available for makeup lessons in the event of cancellations for extreme heat or rain. The decision to cancel will be made on the safety of the courts (a passing, light shower is OK), approximately 90 mins prior to the lesson. This will be communicated by text, email and Facebook post. Fees may change each term but this a reflection of the number of lessons in that term and are not indicative of a price rise. Fees are to be paid up front. Family discounts available. Please feel free to speak with me re any problems. Missed lessons are able to be made up on one of our alternate days.
Racquets are available for use during lessons. If purchasing, please buy a cheap racquet as they will be dropped, thrown, sat on, played air guitar and any other multiple uses that kids can imagine. Please check with us if you would like tips on sizing.
Hats, sunscreen and water bottles always a good idea.
Our lessons roughly follow the plan of introducing a new skill eg forehand, volley etc through a series of drills, and revising previous weeks, for the first half of the lesson. The second half of the lesson is upping the fun factor with a variety of different games to use those skills.
Advantage You has a close association with the Glen Forrest Tennis Club, and we encourage the kids to consolidate their coaching with Social Tennis through the club, if and when they are keen. This is on a casual basis without the need for a membership. The potential to go further playing competitive tennis in the form of Pennants is also possible, as they get older. GFTC welcomes new adult players of all abilities to their Social Tennis on a Wednesday evening throughout the year. Thank you for your inquiry. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
