By Pat Dempsey, USTA Florida local adult play coordinator

Learn to play doubles tennis in a few short weeks…
On a team, learning match skills and strategy with…
Volunteers and instructors who want you to…
Enjoy the game and play for a lifetime!

This is the whole idea behind Love to Learn, a program custom-designed for adult beginners to learn the game of tennis.

If you have always wanted to learn to play tennis, but were afraid, or didn’t know where to start, or thought it cost too much, this program is for you. The cost is low, usually $25-30 for the first set of sessions. The instructors are excited to work with new players, and the clinics are fast paced and will have you hitting the ball in no time.

Ginger, a Love to Learn participant, said “I have wanted to do this for many years, I am so happy to have found this program, it’s a lot of fun.” Brooke, another player, said “I am ready for some competition, already having a blast.”

New sessions will be starting at the Racquet Club of Cocoa Beach and Palmer Inn and Tennis Club in early January — click on the links to register for the new sessions.
