Lakeshore Sport & Fitness offers a wide variety of adult group tennis classes ranging from the first-time beginner level to advanced open level. Players are classified using the National Tennis Rating Program (N.T.R.P.), which places adults into different categories based upon ability and standardizes play for a more enjoyable experience. Grouping by ability allows our LSF instructors to better focus their drills on improving specific skills. The instructor will identify challenge areas and appropriate drills will be utilized to help participants advance their game. For more information on adult tennis classes, contact

Class Format & Player Development

All group classes are designed and taught by certified tennis professionals. The main focus of our instructional program is to make the learning process easier and fun for everyone. Our progressive coaching approach allows all players to develop a specific stroke, technique, and footwork more efficiently and with success. This progressive coaching approach is based on the following criteria:

Warm-up: It consists of 5-7 mins of players starting on the service line hitting forehands and backhands, focusing on footwork, and cooperative rallying (mini-tennis).

Skill Building Drills: Players have the opportunity to practice the same shot in repetition with their tennis professional, focusing on technique and stroke shaping.

Situational Drills/Live Ball Drills: Your tennis professional will create game situations where a specific shot/stroke can be used in a real tennis match. These situational drills bring together all elements of tennis (tactics, decision-making, problem-solving, technique, psychology, etc).

Play Time: Players will put together what they learned during the lesson in a real match play.


Tennis Enthusiasts, get ready for match play in a co-ed team format. Enjoy the fun, high energy, and camaraderie. Matches will take place Saturday afternoons followed by complimentary pizza, drinks, and fun.

Teams will get six regular-season matches over the course of the programming session and each team will have an opportunity to qualify for the playoffs. Each team match will include both singles and doubles totaling 4-5 sets complete.

The team with the most accumulated games won from all sets wins the match. Make your own team with a clever name, and pick your captain, or sign up as an individual and we will place you on a team.

Levels: 3.1-3.5, 3.6-4.0, 4.1-4.5

All USTA Friend Of The Court rules will be used. If a match is tied a doubles tie-breaker will be played to crown a champion. Each match has 2 hours of court time.

How Flex Tennis Leagues Work:

  • Players are divided into groups based on their NTRP rating.
  • Player contact info and weekly matchups will be created and sent out allowing players to schedule each match.
  • One player reserves a court in the MyLSF App and then emails to confirm both players’ names. Courts may be booked up to one week in advance.
  • New balls are provided at the Front Desk with every match.
  • 8-game pro sets are played with a one-hour time limit. If time runs out, whoever is ahead in games records the win.
  • Standings are updated weekly via an online spreadsheet.
  • Prizes are awarded to the top 3 in each level.
  • Available for levels 2.6-3.0, 3.1-3.5, 3.6-4.0, or 4.1-4.5

Tennis Mixer Guidelines

# Participants/Courts:

  • Prime Season – Fall-Spring – 6 courts with open availability on the app at 22 (leaving 2 spots for unforeseen walk-ins, mistaken registrations, etc.
  • Non-Prime Season – Summer – 4 courts with open availability on the app at 14 (leaving 2 spots for unforeseen walk-ins, mistaken registration, etc.

The goal of the mixer is to have people play with like-level players in a social/competitive fashion during the duration of the event. To set the experience up for success, it will greatly improve everyone’s experience if we have players registered ahead of time and have no late arrivals. To the extent that we have unregistered participants or late arrivals, we will do our best to accommodate everyone but will give priority to those who have registered and those who arrive on time.

  • Those who have either not registered or not arrived precisely on time may need to sit out during certain portions of play.
  • If we do not have an even mix of participants (meaning 4 per court), we will do our best to accommodate everyone to create a wonderful playing and social experience.
  • We will give priority to those who have pre-registered and arrived on time to give a complete doubles experience while those who have not registered or who arrive late will need to play in an alternative fashion (e.g., singles, 1 on 2, etc.).
  • If everyone arrives on time and everyone is registered then the mixer facilitator will assign courts based on relative levels to get the game play going.
  • We do expect the organizer to play in as needed to complete a 2-person or 4-person court so that if we have an odd number, participants are still able to enjoy playing.

If in the event of an unforeseen circumstance or substitutions to these guidelines may need to be made that cause an inconvenience for you, we apologize and will gladly refund your registration.


  • Members must register through the MyLSF app. We kindly recommend that participants register 24 hours in advance so we can prep for the mixer, including matches, space, and food/drink in the best way possible. Although registration will be open until the start of the mixer if space is still available. The roster is pulled at 6:55pm just before the mixer begins to capture the most accurate, current registration.
  • The mixer may be cancelled due to low registration if at least 4 players are not registered by 12pm on the day of the mixer. The facilitator will reach out to any players registered alerting them of the cancellation.


  • If you are on the waitlist, the racquet sports department will reach out if a spot opens up and see if you are still interested.
  • The waitlist is on a first-come, first-serve basis in the order by which people register on the waitlist. The racquet sports team will monitor this closely. It does not happen automatically on the app.


  • If you are not registered and there is still space in the mixer you are welcome to play.
  • There may be a delay in getting you on the court if the facilitator needs to shift the intended plan for the day.
  • If you are not registered and there is no space in the mixer you are welcome to wait on the sidelines on standby. If a member no-shows from the roster you may take their spot after the 15-minute mark and once the pro has found a place for you to play. The standby list will be on a first-come, first-serve basis in the order by which people arrive who are not registered.

Late Arrivals:

  • If you are late, you run the risk of not getting on your desired court, will be placed on a court where there is space, and may not be able to play. Please arrive on time or early!
  • If you are late to the program (meaning you arrive after the organizer has split players onto their courts), the organizer will do their best to accommodate you into the mix of play, but you may need to wait until play progresses to the next time slot or by placing you onto the court where we have an odd number of players.
  • People who are late will be placed on a first-arrived, first-placed basis meaning the first “late” person will be played before the “next” late person. In other words, the order of arrival will dictate participation. This may result in a mix of levels of play on a court which is suboptimal so please arrive on time!
  • If you are more than 15 minutes late, your spot may be given up to anyone present who is not registered and on standby. If you arrive after the 15-minute mark and your spot was already given up, then you will not be able to play. If you have pre-registered and you are more than 15 minutes late and not able to play, you will still be charged the full rate for the session. Please arrive on time!

Organization of Play:

  • Attendance will be taken prior to play beginning based on the printed roster.
  • We will accommodate those registered and who have arrived on time first for the organized play.


  • There will be a warmup at the start followed by three 30-minute matches that are based on time, not sets.
  • Initial matchups will be organized based on the facilitator’s previous knowledge of your level of play combined with attempting to have people who came together play together.
  • Mixers are a scramble format. Players play together for one round and then the winners move up a court and split and the non-winners move down a court and split.
