Atkins Tennis Center Lessons
The Atkins Tennis Center offers clinics, private lessons, and group lessons for players of all ages and abilities. Below is a brief overview of each of the lesson types that Atkins offers to allow new players to learn the game and advanced players to master it. Additional information on each of the lesson forms is available on Atkins’ website. If you have further questions, please call Atkins’ front desk at (217) 244-8562 and ask to speak with a member of the instructional staff.
Atkins’ clinics are classes scheduled for a specific time period (4 or 6 weeks). Players in each grouping possess a similar ability level and often share similar goals for participating in the clinic. Clinics take place at the same day and time throughout the session. Additional information including clinic policies, sessions, junior clinic information, and adult clinic information can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate links provided in the taskbar to the right.
Private lessons are for players looking for one on one attention to address specific topics. Players may come to their instructor with a specific idea on what they would like to improve or ask the instructor their opinion on what might help them become a better player. Private lessons are scheduled based on the player’s availability, instructor’s availability, and court availability. Click on the ‘Private Lessons’ link located in the taskbar to the right for more information on private lessons.
Group lessons combine some aspects of clinics and private lessons. In a group lesson, multiple players will be on the court at the same time working with an instructor, however the content covered during the lesson will be dependant on the group’s request. Also, similar to private lessons, a group lesson is scheduled based on the players’ availability, an instructor’s availability, and court availability. The group of players should be arranged by the group; Atkins is not responsible for recruiting players to participate in a group lesson. Click on the ‘Group Lessons’ link located in the taskbar to the right for more information on group lessons.
