HTL Clinics & Policies
Q. How do I determine my playing level?
A. Beginner (1.0 to 2.0 NTRP) - Players have limited experience. Classes focus on stroke progression and footwork with drills, games and abbreviated point play. Basic singles and doubles formations are taught.
Advanced Beginner (2.5 NTRP)- Players continue their stroke progression and learn more advanced net play and footwork techniques. Instructors work with students on basic singles and doubles strategy.
Intermediate (3.0 to 3.5 NTRP)- Players can hit medium and fast paced balls, serve/volley consistently, and they understand singles and doubles strategy. Classes focus on improved consistency, specialty shots and advanced singles and doubles strategy.
Advanced (4.0 to 4.5 NTRP) - Live ball situational singles and doubles drills are the focus, allowing players to work on all aspects of the game each and every drill. Advanced drills move at a fast pace – players should be at a 4.0 player or above and have a good understanding of singles and doubles strategy.
Q. What are the weather and make-up policies for HTL clinics?
A. Classes meet unless of steady rain or temperatures below 45 degrees. In the event HTL cancels class, notification of the cancellation will be via email/text message & a makeup date will be scheduled promptly. If for whatever reason you have to miss a clinic, give us 24 hours notification and we’ll attempt to fit you into a different class of the session in progress. We can't guarantee we will be able to accommodate you, but we will try our best.

Q. What is the Beginner Boot Camp?
A. In three short days (4.5 total hours), a qualified instructor shows beginning adult students the basics of grips, strokes, footwork and strategy. After taking this class you will have a much better understanding of the game and be able to practice the right skills with friends and on your own. Go to schedule.
Q. I would like to attend a clinic, but I can't commit to an entire session. Can I drop-in a class?
A. Yes, you can drop-in any class for a one-time fee. The drop-in rate for a sixty minute class is $25 and $35 for 90 minutes -- please contact us to reserve your drop-in spot.
Q. What are the benefits of playing tennis?
A. Recreational tennis is on the rise across the country. The sport gets you moving and on average, a player burns 300-600 calories for every hour played. Besides the workout, tennis brings you new friends, intense or casual competition, mental stimulation, and the opportunity to have fun outdoors.
Q: Do you hire teachers?
A: Yes, HTL actively seeks qualified teachers who excel at teaching. Please contact us to discuss your background and experience. However, our first loyalty goes to our current teachers.
