Discounted Tennis Programs

The UBC Tennis Centre offers programs for players of all levels. We use a scale to measure level of play from 1.0 to 5.0. Not sure where you fit? Have a look at our Tennis Self Rating Scale to assess your level of play prior to registering for a program.

Adult 1.0 - 2.0 Clinics

Starting tennis or looking for a refresher? Our Summer Clinics are a compact 1-week Clinic that will introduce players to the rules, scoring and positioning in singles and doubles play. The most basic introduction of all tennis strokes (serve, volley, groundstrokes) will be taught, focusing on impact point and proper court positioning. By the conclusion of the course, participants will know how to start and play points using the serve and return.

Required Equipment: Participants are asked to bring their own tennis racket. If you do not have a racket, you may borrow one from our Operations Desk for each 1.0 session.

Tennis Student Programs

Hayato started in our Adult 1.0 Clinics when he was a student and now, as a recent Alumni, you will find him regularly at the centre in our Drills programs and leagues.

They recognize that everyone progresses at different speeds, and the lessons are formatted so you can get better at your own pace depending on how comfortable you are. There's a great variety of participants and I always felt welcome thanks to the incredible staff and coaches.
