Info on where to drill/take lessons from outside of tennis season. Many varsity-level players (and those attempting to reach that level) drill or take lessons outside of season. We will also have available for free the "Summer Hit Club" and the RHS Summer camp ($30).
Tennis is a game of repetition. Students that participate in group drills/private lessons, camps and our off-season workouts tend to have the most success on the court during season.
