e.g. lessons, membership, etc i spent about $1500 on lessons and gorup classes 2 years ago when i started to get into tennis and have really just been playing occasionally with friends since then. after the economy started hitting the pooper, I pulled back on spending on lessons, but now i'm feeling the itch to spend again. just curious to know how much people pay to improve their tennis? i've been getting a feel for the rates, and they haven't really dropped in this down economy (~$40/hr).
