In the first tennis lesson, your child’s coach will spend time assessing the child’s athletic skills during the warm-up, which typically lasts 5-7 minutes. Initially, this process might take a little longer so the instructor can introduce himself to the child and start forming a bond with your munchkin.
After the warm-up, your child will start learning tennis fundamentals, including proper positioning, motions, tossing, stroke production, grips, and footwork.
Don’t be discouraged if your child won’t be able to hit a ball at first. Show support and encouragement to your little athlete. It might take a few lessons to improve hand-eye coordination in combination with timing to be able to start playing tennis.
