Adult Programs:

Whether you are just beginning to play tennis or if you are an experienced player, the LRC Adult Programs will help you improve your tennis game. The LRC offers programs ranging from beginner to advance. Here at the Lipscomb Racquet Club we believe that fitness plays a major role in improving your tennis game as well. We offer several different fitness class options that are geared towards making you a better tennis player. We also offer great league options as well. Join in with the LRC Adult Programs to improve your game and meet others who love to play. Clinics are an hour and a half long; if there are less than four participants clinics will run for only one hour.

Once again the Lipscomb Racquet Club is leading the way in fitness for tennis players. Starting this year we have a new class that will improve any tennis player's game. Tennis Fit is designed to help individuals improve their game by doing the off court work it take to play excellent tennis. Core strength, flexibility and movement are all key components to tennis, and our Tennis Fit course works on all of these. Jonathan Flinn is the only Certified Tennis Performance Specialist (CTPS) in middle Tennessee and he specializes in tennis specific strength and conditioning. The cost of this 60 minute clinic is $25.00 for one person and $5 per person after with a maximum of eight per class. This is a great class for you and your friends to take together, have fun and improve your tennis game.
