Tennis Academy

The core of the program is based on a detail oriented approach to the game. Using a progression style teaching method, specific stroke fundamentals will be constantly emphasized. Shot selection and recognition of offense vs. defense, based on court positioning, contact point, and opponent’s court positioning will be discussed in length. Serve and return will be a major focus, specifically using the serve to set up the first offensive ball of the rally, and learning the appropriate patterns consistent with play at a national level.

Although many of the concepts discussed here apply to all tennis players our teaching will be customized to each player’s strengths and weaknesses. This page outlines some of the benefits you will receive as a Penn Oaks Tennis Academy student.
