A Practice Court can be of immense value to players who are developing their strokes or trying to correct flaws in them.
Statistics show that usually a person who is learning tennis will get out on the court too soon and will be so frustrated with the lack of immediate results that he/she quits after a few lessons.
As Dr. Anthony Scolnick, our director of tennis, explains: "We are teaching people through progression - how to crawl, walk, and eventually to run".
Not your ususal tennis court
Our practice court is as long as half a court and as wide as a singles court. Each section is as wide as half a singles court. Behind the net, an automated ball machine will feed balls programed to your level. A retrieval system will take care of picking the balls up, so you can concentrate on hitting more strokes. A colorful target scheme hangs behind the net and allows for practicing controlled hitting.
