Hi all, I am in the surprising situation where 2 of my boys (aged 6 and 10yr) wish to play tennis after a few years lay off.. I have previously tried "mini" or "short court" tennis group lessons with a pro coach some time ago, and whilst I liked what I saw (for the most part), they spent most of their time waiting in lines or for a hit, noticed that the kids got a little bored with it, and errors they made at the beginning of their lessons were being repeated by the end of the lesson, due to working most likely in a group situation where coaches probably struggle for time. The boys didn't want to continue lessons in this group situation.. I came to the conclusion that my kids want to play after speaking to them recently of this, they want to really hit the ball, and are quite competitive, even at their ages.. Regreattably with their outside school sporting ativities, the funds aren't there for private lessons each week, which was how I was taught.. Anyway, theres the brief history .. So, now we have been hitting on the road, and with membership to a club beginning soon, thought that knowing my kids want to learn, and want to play every day, was hopeful that I can get them really started in the game.. Has anyone tried this, what worked for you, and what didn't, obviously it is about THEM and not me, as this should be fun, yet challenging and rewarding as they see their own progress in the game.. I have a few ideas, bearing in mind that coaching 2 different aged kids are at different stages of motor skill coordination can be tricky. Also being their father may simply not work.. Love your thoughts on this. Cheers guys.
