As the temps dip in January 2017, we invite you to join us inside the Leonard Hall Recreation Center in Leonardtown for some fun sessions of R&P Adult Tennis and the only indoor tennis offered in St. Mary's, Calvert & Charles Counties.
We have four sessions per week of Adult Cardio Tennis (Sunday evenings 8-9pm starting Jan. 15, Tuesday mornings 8-9am starting Jan. 10, Friday mornings 7-8am and 9:15-10:15am starting Jan. 13). Coach Brian Abell has lots of new drills and games to try this year, and he'll tailor each group's activities based on feedback from the players in that class.
Adult Tennis Lessons are offered Sunday evenings 9-10:15pm and Friday mornings 8-9:15am. You can sign up for the lessons and Cardio classes back-to-back. Each class series meets for six sessions, costs $55 for the six weeks and is available for ages 16 and up.
Senior Orange Ball Tennis is offered Tuesday mornings 9-10:15am for those ages 40 and up and will provide instructional tips and fun match play on 60-ft-long courts. While just a bit slower, it still feels very much like traditional tennis and is a good training vehicle to try new shots and techniques you may eventually bring to the full-size court. The Senior Orange Ball Tennis fee is $40 for the six weekly sessions.
Cardio Tennis is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best features of the sport of tennis with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate, full body, calorie burning aerobic workout. It is a very fun and social class for players of all ability levels. The one hour class includes a warm-up, cardio segment and cool down and uses music and heart rate monitors (limited number of loaners available). Participants elevate their heart rates into their aerobic training zone. The class leader is Brian Abell, a Cardio Tennis Authorized Provider.
Coach Brian Abell is offering Tennis Lessons for Adults and Adult Cardio Tennis through Rec & Parks this winter and spring. Cardio Tennis sessions begin January 10th, March 10th, and March 28th, and run once weekly for 10-11 weeks. Tennis lessons for both beginners and intermediate players run weekly for 6 weeks, with sessions starting in February, March, and April.
