3 & A Pro
Have you wanted to be the doubles partner of an instructor so that you can learn to improve your own game? Maybe you would prefer to play against the pro in order to test your skills at a higher level? “3 & a Pro” can do both of these things.
Get two of your friends so that there are three participants, choose the pro you would like to work with (or we will supply you with one) and let the games begin! After a quick warm-up, it’s time to get right into point play. Each player will have an opportunity to play alongside the instructor while the pro offers guidance and advice on doubles strategy. For competitive doubles players, this is a great opportunity to push your game ahead on both offense and defense.
Cardio Fit classes are a fantastic workout while also being great for your tennis game. Players have an opportunity to hit a large number of shots while keeping their feet moving and burning calories.
Some drills are constructed in point-play fashion while others are rapid ball-feeding. We have designed this class to be customized to your ability and endurance level. If you feel you need more of a challenge or if the intensity is too high, the instructor can vary the difficulty for each person.
Clinics are typically the most popular form of tennis instruction because of the balance between physical activity and cost effectiveness. Adult clinics at the MLTC are customized to the needs and level of each person and can be scheduled morning, noon and night. The adult clinics are designed for beginners through advanced players and contain between 3-5 players (up to six if there is more than one court).
Footwork & Conditioning
Success in tennis begins from the ground up. If you can’t get to the ball or if your positioning is poor, then you can’t expect to be consistent with your shots. It’s also important that your body is ready to go the distance in those long matches that require extra endurance.
The MLTC’s Footwork & Conditioning program is designed for players who are ready to work and work hard. Your agility and your endurance will be put to the test each time you take this class. The idea is to challenge your body with a number of different exercises that will help prepare you to take the extra steps needed to set up for your next tennis shot. At the same time, while your opponent is becoming more tired, you’ll just be getting started.
Serve To Win
All tennis players know that the most important shot in tennis is the serve, yet how often do players actually set aside separate time to practice such a key part of the game? Now you have the chance to fix that.
The MLTC offers hour-long clinics that are solely dedicated to improving the serve. These clinics run week-to-week so that you can only sign up for one if you are just looking for a tune up before your next match or you can take it every week so that your serve steadily gets better.
During a Serve To Win clinic, your service practice is supervised by one of our instructors who will assist you with the mechanics of your motion so that you are on the right track.
Stroke of the Week
In this one-hour class, players work strictly on just one shot. The typical rotation is forehands for the first class, backhands for the second, volleys third, overheads and lastly, serves.
Stroke of the week is ideal for the player who is struggling with a specific shot and needs to review and solidify the fundamentals. It is also for the player who is looking for a lot of repetition, but does not have the time during the week to drill the stroke.
Being able to hit the ball to specific areas of the court at specific times is crucial to winning points, games, sets and matches. Tactical Targeting works on your ability to hit your target while placing emphasis on tactical significance in a variety of situations. Repetition and visual aids are the key components of this program so that players will learn to identify parts of the court to attack. There is even a new can of balls used as a target at every class; hit it and you keep it!
Repetition is the mother of skill, so you can expect to be see lots of balls during this program.
Technique of the Week
Similar to stroke of the week, Technique of the Week is designed to focus on a singular aspect of the game.
In this more advanced offering, players learn how to execute and improve their usage of topspin, approach shots, drop shots & angle volleys, service placement and lob coverage.
Though targeted to the player looking for the competitive edge, this program will be an asset to anyone who is at a 3.0 level or higher.
If you play competitively on a club team or if you are simply seeking a stronger knowledge of the game of doubles, then this is for you. Come train with players from other area clubs in a fun and fast-paced drill environment. The program is divided into one hour of drilling and 30 minutes of critiqued play. Learn and master the skills of proper positioning, shot placement and point construction through these specialized exercises and play format.
Coaches have specific level designations that range from low intermediate through advanced, so we will get you placed properly.
All of these classes are run at various times during the week and on the weekends.
