Tennis Drill Group – Wednesdays 10am – 11am, May 1 – July 24
One time $10.00 ball and machine maintenance fee

Wirth Park Courts 2000 N. Calhoun Rd., Brookfield
This is for players who have the basics and seriously want to improve, or for intermediate players who want to sharpen their game. You need to be a willing, cooperative practice partner. We’ll be alternating between ball feeding and ball hitting. We’ll be rotating a lot so you get to hit against lots of players and styles. Drills will be introduced by a facilitator along with competitive fun practice games designed to repetitively hit the same practice shot. “Unprofessional” instruction and tips available. Ball machine used at times. Special slow impact balls used at times. Lots of practice balls available for more repetitions and less ball chasing.

Play a regular practice set afterwards or games if you choose.

No commitment, come when you want to come.

It’s fun! Make time to practice. No partner needed.
