Here are some frequently asked questions. We hope this helps!
How many students are in each class?
Usually there are 4-6 students per instructor.
Do we need a racket for the lessons?
No, loaner rackets are available upon request. You can buy a racket at Sports Authority, Modells, or Target for a low cost. After your first time taking classes- there is a daily racquet rental charge of $5 per day. We also have some racquets for sale. To buy a racquet see below.
How long are classes?
Classes are usually 1 hour long unless otherwise noted.
What are the facilities like?
The facilities are very varied. Some facilities are full tennis courts but other facilities are simply black tops. Either way we put up portable nets and the classes are super.

All of our instructors are hard working and have a large base of tennis knowledge. They are personable.
What happens if we need to miss a class?
If you need to miss a class, you must let ElfTennis know 24 hours in advance. Every attempt will be made to schedule a make up class for you. If you aren't able to regularly commit to a given time each week, you are welcome to pay as you go for a higher rate.
Are refunds given?
Refunds are only given if a class is canceled due to lack of enrollment or lack of court availability. Refunds will also be granted if you withdraw before the second class and your spot is resold.

Classes consist of games and drills tailored to the needs of your age group and ability. Instructors combine fun with technical instruction. So far everyone loves the classes.
