Sizzling Summer Serving Superiority Tennis Workshops
Select Tuesdays, 9 am Elm Grove Park

Make 2023 the year you improve your serve – the most important shot of the game. Finally get more power. Improve your accuracy. Achieve variety and deception. Lower your double faults. Develop some spin or slice.

Gene O’Kelly will coordinate the instruction, drills, practices, competitive serving games and personal numerical evaluations with tracking for improvement. All servers will improve!

Workshop Dates – 9 a.m. on select Tuesdays: April 25, May 9, May 23, June 6, June 27, July 11, July 25, Aug. 8 and Aug. 22.

fWithout repetitive practice, your serve will not improve. Without getting out of your comfort zone, your serve will stay the same or even regress. It’s hard to analyze your serve and correct your flaws on your own. Positive feedback can help you recognize errors and adjust. Fee: $15 total for all nine sessions. Come or skip when you want. Event coordinator: Gene O’Kelly, (414) 526-2719.
