We have a three-pronged adult tennis program. Coach Jackson conducts Adult Doubles Clinic, a fee-based clinic every Thursday night. The 90-minute session includes skills and drills and supervised match play. In addition to improving tennis skills, this is a real workout which improves cardio, agility, balance, and coordination. Each Thursday session of Adult Doubles Clinic is $15.
Tennis Tuesdays is the perfect complement to the clinic, as it gives you an opportunity to play competitive tennis in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Tennis Tuesdays start at 6:30 p.m. each Tuesday, beginning on February 13, 2018 and will run in seven five-week sessions. We will change the play format every five weeks and we will place you with others in comparable skill levels. This is a great way to use your skills and have fun. Each Tuesday costs $3. The schedule for Tennis Tuesday for 2018 is:
Session 1: February 13, 20, 27 and March 6, 13
Session 2: March 20, 27 and April 3, 10, 17
Session 3: April 24 and May 1, 8, 15, 22
Session 4: June 5, 12, 19, 26 and July 10
Session 5: July 17, 24, 31 and August 7, 14
Session 6: August 21, 28 and September 4, 11, 18
Session 7: September 25 and October 2, 9, 16, 23
If you wish to be included in the Text Alert Reminder and Weather Change system, you will need to send an email to Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and mobile number before the first session. We will decide by 5:30 each Tuesday whether to cancel due to bad weather and send the text message at 5:30 p.m. Rainouts will be rescheduled for the next day, the Wednesday.
We will help you form a USTA League team if you wish to play in the Tennessee State Championships. Tennessee has four state league championships: Adult spring (singles and doubles in same gender); Mixed Doubles; Tri-Level Doubles (3 cascading NTRP level doubles courts at each match in same gender) and Combo Doubles (combined NTRP same gender doubles). The deadline for team formation in order to qualify for the state championship is fairly rigid and we encourage you to contact Helen Smith early in order to organize a team.
If you have questions, please call or text Helen Smith at 423-329-3847. We look forward to seeing you on the courts!
