Warkworth Tennis and Squash Club coach Hugo Santos is pushing three new tennis sessions for players of all abilities to encourage membership growth.
The sessions are called Tennis Express, Cardio Tennis and Intermediate/Advanced Tennis.
“Tennis Express is a great option for beginners, and I’m hoping to attract retired people who want a sport that they can keep playing for a number of years,” Santos says.
“If they enjoy it, we will get them involved with the club and grow our membership.”
The second option is Cardio Tennis, a fitness session with music that gets the heart rate up and teaches basic tennis skills.
Advanced Tennis is for more experienced players who want to refine their skills and improve tactically.
“By offering these three classes, there should be something to suit everyone.”
Santos says all three sessions involve drills based on ‘serve, rally and score’ to make them competitive and fun.
“You might hit around 200 balls in an hour. It’s a great way to improve the quality and consistency of your shots in a short space of time.
“We usually focus on a skill over four to five sessions, so you should see improvement in your game quite quickly.”
Each session lasts one hour and costs $15 for club members and $20 for non-members.
Express will be held on Tuesdays with sessions from 9am to 10am and 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
Cardio will be on Wednesday from 9am to 10am, while Advanced will be on Thursday from 8am to 9am and 9am to 10am. Sessions will run all year round, weather permitting.
