About Us

Racquet Network specializes in teaching adults and children how to rally and play outdoor tennis at a recreational level. We also provide opportunities for new players to meet other players at their level and become involved in Calgary’s tennis community.

ADULT TENNIS PATHWAY

STEP 1 – Introductory Tennis Lessons
STEP 2 – Learn to Rally Consistently
STEP 3 – Learn to Serve Consistently
STEP 4 – One Week Tennis League
STEP 5 – Competitive Tennis Leagues

Racquet Network has programs in place at tennis facilities in Calgary to help players take all five of the steps above. Players meet other players at their level at every step along the way. Some players become friends. Some become rivals. Either way, players in our programs often tell us that they are playing tennis more often and at a higher level than at any other point in their lives.


Step 1 – TENNIS LESSONS

Learn the three essential tennis strokes in six sequential lessons: forehand, backhand and serve. Most players who complete this step will be ready to move on to Step 2. In some cases, instructors may recommend that students repeat this level to improve their basic skills before moving on to Step 2.

Step 4 – ONE WEEK TENNIS LEAGUES

One week tennis leagues give players an opportunity to join a league for one week and assess whether or not they are ready for organized tennis. Each league runs Monday to Friday during outdoor tennis season. Players may join as many one-week leagues as they want. Many players alternate between taking lessons and practicing what they have learned in our one week tennis leagues.
