Red Raiders Class
This is our Red Raiders tennis class for beginner players. We focus on developing racket awareness, balance, hand eye coordination and the basic strokes in tennis. We use modified equipment to help the learning process. It is important to us to provide a positive environment that is both focused on learning and fun!
Marjorie is working on shortening her backswing on her forehand doing shadow swinging. This is a technique we use to help kids learn correctly. Improving technique helps hit the ball straighter and increases racket head acceleration.
Izzie working on forehand with Ken
Izzie is doing a great job getting her racket head lower. She came to us with an excessive backswing that was way too high.
