My local city tennis center has adult intermediate clinics which run in alternating 4 and 8 week sessions where you can sign up for either once or twice a week for one hour time slots. I'd never done one of these clinics before due to work conflicts but since I was free for the current 4 week session I gave it a shot and signed up for twice a week. It was only $64 so I wasn't too worried about whether it was going to be worth it or not. The first session got rained out last Monday so last Wednesday was our first meeting and it turned out only one other man signed up. He was a 3.0 who I hadn't met before but who'd coincidentally played on a 3.0 team at my club which went to state last year so we knew a lot of the same people. The instructor was a 22 year old fresh out of college guy who'd played DIII at a local University and had previously taught kid's clinics at a country club but had never taught adults. So last Wednesday we warmed up for about 15 minutes with him feeding us balls and having us hit a forehand crosscourt, BH DTL, approach shot, volley, and overhead and because there were only two of us we each hit a ton of balls. At this point the instructor told us he'd never done an adult clinic before and asked us what we wanted to do. The other player wanted to work on doubles so with the instructor feeding balls to us in lieu of serves we played a cross-court doubles drill for another 15 minutes while he kept score and occasionally offered critique. We then at the instructor's suggestion hit serves for 15 minutes while he watched and gave a few tips then finally the 3.0 guy and I played points while instructor picked up balls for the last 15 minutes. He didn't really watch us during this last part that I could tell. I'm writing because its very likely instructor is going to again ask us what we'd like to work on and I'd like to have some good suggestions ready. There is also a possibility I'll be out there on my own tonight as the 3.0 guy only signed up for once a week (Wednesdays) and though he told me last time he might change to twice a week he wasn't sure. If I'm by myself I'm thinking of just suggesting that the instructor and I just play at least a set since I don't get that many chances to play singles against 4.5 or better players which I'd guess is where he is. Good idea? Any suggestions you all might have for suitable drills or activities for either two students and an instructor or just one-on-one with the instructor would be much appreciated.
