Adult Program

 

Adults of all skill levels are encouraged to partake in the Missouri Athletic Club's tennis program.

The professional tennis staff at the Missouri Athletic Club is prepared to assist adults of all skill levels through private lessons and programs that vary throughout the year, such as:

ADULT CLINICS

Classes begin with instruction and demonstration of the day's topics followed by drilling of the new stroke and technique. The last half hour of each class is used to practice tennis skills in a game or game-like setting. During this portion of the class, the tennis pros give tips on strategy, court positioning and stroke production as well as guidance concerning tennis rules and etiquette. The goal is to improve each participant's tennis game and provide a good workout.
 

ADULT TENNIS DRILL & PLAY

This drill and league play is headed up by tennis pro, Dave Fuhrig and is for men and women interested in working on their singles and doubles match play at the 3.0 or 3.5 USTA level. 

These pro-led cardio tennis classes emphasize aerobic drills, which will improve tennis skills and provide a good workout! Sign up per day online.

This clinic includes singles instruction and strategy followed by game and set play for all levels. Players are matched according to ability to help ensure everyone has a good time. The clinic agenda includes 40-45 minutes of warm-up, drill and instruction, followed by 15-20 minutes of play.
