Social Tennis for Seniors

Keep it moving... Please join Donald Means, OLLI Member, in this introductory tennis class. We begin with light weight training followed by the basics of tennis, including basic grip, serve, forehand, backhand, volleys, and doubles play. There is a moderate level of physical activity. Weight training will be held in the Field House Weight Room across from the tennis courts. Please bring a tennis racket, tennis shoes, small towel, and water. This class meets for 22 sessions by the CSUDH tennis courts and will remain available an additional two weeks on Tuesdays and Fridays for practice.
