Here is what we're serving up
Whether you're just beginning, or on your way to becoming a USTA professional, Forest View Racquet and Fitness Club has plenty of ways to improve your game. Court time, lessons, and memberships are available for you to improve your tennis skills with the Arlington Heights Park District. Meet your match at Forest View Racquet and Fitness Club.
The adult tennis instruction program includes five different levels, classified by title and NTRP scale. If you are uncertain about your entry level and NTRP rating, please consult a member of our pro staff or refer to the NTRP self rating system. Since each class represents a specific ability level, completion of one session does not necessarily insure graduation to the next highest level. Levels include beginner, advanced beginner, and intermediate.
10 AND Under: Quick Start Tennis
The Quick Start Tennis method of teaching for young junior players is the first of three phases of our lesson program. We believe that this is the best way to get students playing tennis at young ages with solid techniques. Racquets, balls, and courts will be sized appropriate for each age, size, and ability level with the goal of kids playing tennis earlier in the learning process.
Junior Match Play
Junior development is the second phase of the Forest View junior lesson program. This phase of the program is geared toward beginner and advanced beginner junior players ages 10 - 14. The focus of training is on technical development in preparation for play. This phase of the junior lesson program is appropriate for students learning the game for fun, or as preparation for future competitive play.
The Academy Program is for competitive junior players. Learning perfect strokes is a worthy goal, but only if they can help you win the point. Tennis cannot be learned in a classroom, so students should expect to hit more than listen. The focus of training in the program will be on teaching players how to apply their individual skill to various levels of competition.
Forest View women's teams compete in the Northwest Suburban daytime travel league which includes Glenview, Niles, Winnetka, Wilmette, South Barrington, and Heritage Tennis Club.
