Last year, we bought tennis rackets at Dick's and an oversized box of balls at Costco. We decided we were going to start playing tennis, casually, just for some sun and exercise. Little did I know how competitive I'd be - and how much fun we'd have playing with the neighbors and our kids on the court.
To amp up my game, I searched for tennis lessons in DC and found an awesome web site called Play Your Court - where you can arrange lessons with a tennis pro online and they'll come right to your home court for instruction.
The site was easy to use, and when you go through the process of selecting your skill level, age, and goals, Play Your Court will show you your matches. You can see photos of the tennis professionals in your area, as well as their locations, experience, and hourly rates. Even better, there are customer reviews that you can read for your recommended professionals.
B and I had a lesson, in the hot hot heat, with Lancy. She was so lovely! Knowing that I had signed B up to be a part of the tennis lesson, she brought special kids balls and set him up with drills on his own court while she and I practiced right next to him.
I learned SO much in just one short hour. It's amazing how all of the little tips and pointers can really improve your overall game. I always felt confident in my forehand, but struggled with an appropriate follow through. I also FINALLY figured out how to make better contact on my two-handed backhand. At the end, with a quick flip of my fingers, I was more comfortable serving that I have ever been.
If you're looking for tennis lessons in DC, check out Play Your Court. I'm ready to sign up for my next lesson! My neighbors better watch out for my backhand! :)
