Lessons are conducted on a mini court with modified balls and racquets to enhance the success and progression of the student. This level concentrates on and evolves fundamental motor-skills such as throwing and catching as well as specific tennis movements involved with body coordination and spatial awareness. The development of the basic techniques of a tennis swing and recognition of major strokes such as forehand, backhand, volley and serve are included. Progression into rallies on the modified court, positioning and scoring is a major focus in a highly enjoyable group environment.
