LIVE BALL! Every Monday from 7:00pm - 8:30pm

“It’s like a doubles-style King of the Court!” A doubles-style game where players compete to hold the top of the court for as long as possible. The challenging team must win three points before the top team wins two in order to move to the top side. Each point starts with two cross court shots, followed by tons of fast-paced doubles action. Live Ball is great doubles training and an excellent cardio-work out!

 Cost: $15 (Pay As You Play)

 

Improve Your Strokes (Beginner - Intermediate) Wednesday from 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Each week will be focused on learning and developing the proper technique of each stroke so you will be able to efficiently move the ball and your opponent around the court.
