Park and Rec Tournament, 8 Different Park and Rec Programs (Held at Premier Tennis and Fitness). This is a great opportunity to play at Premier Tennis and Fitness and to show what you have learned by competing in a tournament against players from: Janesville, Fort Atkinson, Stoughton, Beloit, Oregon, Milton, and Whitewater. Points will be awarded to each program based on attendance and success in the games/matches played. There will be prizes given out to the Park and Rec program with the most points accumulated as well as prizes given out to individual winners. Premier Tennis and Fitness is located at 3410 Bell Street in Janesville (behind Target).
Ages 3 – 6: Using Quick Start approach, children are taught using balls that bounce lower and don’t move as fast so they are easier to hit.
Ages 7 – 8: Students will further develop tennis strokes, groundstrokes, volleys and the serve. Footwork drills and pint playing will be introduced.
Ages 9 – 12: Students will refine stroke mechanics with major emphasis on improving the consistency and accuracy of groundstrokes, volleys, overheads and learning the rules of the game.
Ages 13 – 18: This group is designed for high school players or advanced middle schoolers. Drills become more intense and focused on strategy, point play for singles and doubles.
Adults: All levels are welcome from beginner to advanced. Drills will work on technique, strategy, and point play. Drills will be fast paced and keep you moving.
