Teaching pro Russ Woodward will be the instructor for the week and will be assisted by members of the Nevada Union High School tennis team, of which he is currently the head coach.
Here is what Coach Russ will be teaching you: "We will be learning the proper way to hit a forehand and backhand ground stroke, a forehand and backhand volley, the overhead and the serve. We will also learn how to play points, keep score and some basic strategy in singles and doubles play. Learning how to play tennis properly makes the game much easier and more enjoyable."
