More than thirty million Americans play tennis. Combining strength, speed, endurance and strategy, it is a sport that attracts players from ages 3 to 93. Hingham Recreation wants to foster the skills and desire fundamentals for a lifelong relationship with one of the world's most popular sports. Our tennis pros have created a program designed for everyone from beginners to advanced players. In each of the levels, the two-pronged approach is made up of:
1. Guided instruction: focus on form, strategy and structure
2. Gameplay: Applying the skills learned during instruction into fun and meaningful games
Additionally, participants will also engage in "team" challenges to encourage a foundation of teamwork and foster good sportsmanship.
Each child is evaluated during the first week for placement. The Pro and Assistant will then create even-skilled teams (3 or 6 kids per team). Age-appropriate balls will be provided; each child must have his/her own racquet. There will be a maximum of 18 kids for 6 courts. .
