Tennis is a repetition sport. Our approach is simple: The right concept is tediously repeated by the student until it becomes second nature. Each student is put through a natural progression of steps until the fundamentals of each stroke is learned.
The initial focus of the programs at Epiphany Court involves building the necessary steps and concepts to execute the different strokes and motions. As a student's strength and coordination improves we focus more on concept and form for proper stroke development. Each student receives individualized instructions in a group setting. Individual instruction is provided to students experiencing problems.
Upon developing basic tennis skills: shot placement, decent serves, and good footwork, we place the student on the path to the next level: Match play.
Competition is the key to the next level. Putting your skills to the test in a competitive environment forces the student to make improvements his/her game. You can practice a shot a hundred times on the practice courts, but until you are placed in a win-lose situation, you won't know if you can do it under pressure.
Epiphany Court believes that testing your game through competition motivates you to improve your skills. Competition shows you what areas of your game you need to focus on.
Students signing up for private lessons receive the same instruction offered in all of the other programs offered at Epiphany Court. The benefit of private lessons include one-on-one instruction from the coach and more instruction time. Private lessons are offered to youth and adults.

Youth clinics are group tennis lessions that offer the same instruction as all other tennis programs offered at Epiphany Court. There are two levels of youth clinics offerd: Beginner and Advanced.
Beginner Clinics are offered to students who have little to no tennis experience. The students in the beginner clinics meet 3 times per week for 1.5 hours each sessions. Students in this program are moved to the advanced clinics once the fundamental skills required to advance are mastered. Students advance to the next level at different times.
Advanced Clinics are offered to students who have mastered the basic techniques of tennis, including the strokes, serve, and proper footwork. The students meet 3 times per week for 1.5 hours each session.
