Group classes at Grand Slam Tennis focus on fun and skill improvement. For the younger students, the classes are relaxed and designed to introduce them to the sport through fun and games, but also learning the basic skills at the same time. For the older students, the classes still incorporate lots of games but focus more on skill improvement. Generally classes are capped at around 10 children. Group classes are offered Monday through Thursday with two- or four-day-a-week registration options. There are three sessions offered each summer.

This class is intended for students who are at a higher level of play and want more competition to prepare for High School.
