GET STARTED WITH A COMPLIMENTARY TENNIS ORIENTATION
Members are encouraged to take advantage of our complimentary racquet sports orientation. During your one-on-one orientation, you’ll spend time with a staff professional who will assess your skill level and guide you to the appropriate programming options.
Please contact your Racquet Sports Director, Warwick Bashford at (864) 310-6400 Ext. 105 to set up an orientation.
Adult group classes (beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels) are the training ground for most of our new adult players. We also offer a variety of drills, games, mixers, and special events to engage all levels of tennis players. These are a great opportunity to learn from our pro, improve your game, meet new friends, and enjoy playing tennis!
JUNIOR TENNIS (After School)
The tennis journey for kids starts here! The name R*O*G*Y Tennis highlights the development and transition of players from red to orange to green to ultimately the standard, yellow tennis balls. The type of balls and court size are adjusted to fit a child’s developmental level and allows them to enjoy more success along each step of their learning path.
Additionally, we offer many play days, camps, and special events throughout the year for even more tennis fun!
JUNIOR TENNIS (Homeschool)
R*O*G*Y (Red, Orange, Green & Yellow Ball) level classes will be run at the same time for the convenience of our Homeschool families. We will divide classes out on separate courts for the different ages. All ages will play with the appropriate size court and equipment.
PRIVATE TENNIS CLASSES
The WILLIS ROAD YMCA has a tennis professional who works with members to refine their game. Working directly with our tennis pro not only makes learning more fun, but also helps you reach your goals and see improvements more quickly.
Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis and table tennis. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. See how much fun Pickle ball can be for you and your friends!
Play for fun, exercise, challenge and friendship.
Racquetball is an easy sport to learn. You can even play without a partner! A good game of racquetball puts all your muscle groups to work, building strength and endurance. It improves gross motor movement, eye-hand coordination, and flexibility.
Badminton is a sport that involves the volleying of a shuttlecock over a net with the use of racquets. Badminton is an aerobic sport that can be played for pleasure or for competition.
