The low intermediate workshop, slated for 2:30-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 16, will focus on improving dink shots, volleys, and serve and return. Through match play, those who attend the session will also receive helpful positioning and strategy tips.
On Wednesday evening, February 15, intermediate-level players will have their chance to improve. From 6:30-8:30 p.m., they will be given advanced tips, play matches, and be critiqued on strategy and play.
All of the workshops will be held inside the Rec Center at 15 Vanderbilt Avenue. Fees are $47 for city residents and $57 for non-city residents. You will need a paddle, sneakers, and water.
