Les teaches students of all ages and abilities. The following is a breakdown of the classes available through the Morgan Hill Recreation department.
10 and under classes:
Using the guidelines of United States Tennis Association (USTA), Les has designed a program that has youngsters learning proper techniques and playing sooner than traditional adult methods. The use of low compression tennis balls has revolutionized teaching tennis.
Classes are broken into Red Ball (5-7 years), Orange Ball (8-10 years, and Green ball (11-13 years).
Tennis for Teens:
Juniors who are 11 to 18 years start in the Green Ball class, then progress to Yellow Ball (Adult regulation ball) when skill level warrants it.
Private and Group Lessons:
Students wanting lessons individually, or in a small group settings are available. The number of lessons, length, frequency, time and date are arranged between student and instructor. Students need not sign up for a block of lessons.
Competitive Workout and teams:
Those players interested in preparing for teams or tournaments, check with Les when these sessions are available. USTA league teams are formed each season.
