Read on to learn about the various types of instruction available for your skill level, age and preferences. We believe your tennis lessons should be just right for you.

Tennis lessons for beginner adults

“I really enjoy teaching strategy and how to construct points to mid-beginning and mid-level adults.” — Coach Kevin, Cumming, GA


There’s a reason tennis is called the lifetime sport. It’s an excellent cardio and recreational activity for adults no matter the skill level. Don’t to be nervous if you’re an adult who’s never played before or are picking up the racket for the first time in many years. Despite tennis’ complexities, with one-on-one instruction, beginning adults can grasp the sport in no time.

Tennis lessons for beginner kids

“As an instructor of young and beginner tennis players I always provide an exciting opportunity for children to learn tennis and have a great time doing it.” — Coach Ferdinand, Fort Washington, MD

With private lessons, learning tennis is fun and exciting for kids. Working with an instructor who is qualified to teach 10 and under or QuickStart tennis will enable children to learn the sport quickly. By combining fundamentals with games, coaches can instill a love of tennis in young children.

Tennis lessons for advanced adults

“I am flexible and make sure that my students get a good workout as well as make good progress in their games. I specialize in adult individual lessons.” — Coach Mani, Bethesda, MD

While many advanced adults play regularly in leagues, private tennis lessons can help you develop your skills. If you want to move up from a 3.5 to a 4.0 player or be the no. 1 player in the lineup, consider taking private lessons to compliment league play. Working with a private coach will allow you to improve weaknesses and assess your strengths for matches.

Tennis lessons for advanced kids

“I coach beginners to top-level competitive players. I focus on players’ technical, tactical, physical and mental skills.” — Coach Wayne, Flagstaff, AZ

For youth players with aspirations of reaching the top level of competition (like Francis Tiafoe, pictured above), private lessons are necessary to progress skills. Whether you want to make the varsity team, earn a college scholarship or turn pro, a private coach can serve as a trainer and mentor.

Hitting tennis lessons

“Hitting and playing sets is the best way to learn stroke production and tactics.” — Coach Brett, El Cajon, CA

Having a highly qualified coach as a hitting partner will allow students to pause point play and inquire about strokes or strategy. Hitting lessons are great for competitive players of all ages and can be combined with lessons that incorporate ball feeding and drills, too.

Cardio tennis lessons

“I get my students moving. Our lesson will be fun and a great workout!” — Coach Matthew, North Reading, MA

If tennis serves as your primary workout, cardio tennis is the trend you need to try. Grab a few friends for this social program that combines fitness and tennis. Several MyTennisLessons instructors are qualified to teach cardio tennis lessons. Find them in North Reading, MA; Deerfield, IL; and Mount Pleasant, SC, among other locations.

Semi-private tennis lessons

“Group lessons are my specialty. I incorporate games into my lessons and have been told I am a very fun and enthusiastic instructor.” — Coach Barbi, Chandler, AZ

If you play tennis for social reasons, bring a friend, family member or spouse along to your lesson. Semi-private lessons with groups of four people or less still allow time for individual instruction, but also allow you to enjoy the sport with others. Semi-private lessons also provide opportunities to play against someone at your own skill level, work on doubles strategy or have fun with games.
