  • Beginners: never had tennis training before.
  • Level 10: you did at least one course before. FH, BH and service techniques are known, but no real stability yet.
  • Level 9: you have control over the basics (FH, BH en service) and can perform a 10 strike rally. Some experience in volley and smashing.
  • Level 8: you can play a rally with the basics and differentiate with baseline play and net play.

CardioTennis is a new tennis workout, coming over from Florida (USA). In CardioTennis, you work on your individual goals within a group of 4-10 persons. Primary targets: improve your condition and burn calories. In the training we use heart rate monitors and motivational music.

A CardioTennis workout takes 1 hour. You only need a racket and it is a lot of fun!!
