Winter break is a great time to set up some practice matches for your junior players. Practice matches can be scheduled in non-prime time for the practice match rate of $22/hour. If you don’t have a partner or need some suggestions, Don Campbell is our practice match expert. Talk with Don or leave him a message and he will assist you in setting up some matches. Pros may have more lesson times and courts available over the break for private lessons. Speak with your favorite coach to schedule a time.
