Be Rated and Ready!
TCSP uses NTRP Ratings to help players find the appropriate class and program that best fits their level of play. Ratings help everyone’s experience on the court and ensures all players maximize their time on the court. If you play USTA Adult League or are a seasoned tournament player with a verifiable rating on the USTA’s TennisLink website, we will use that rating for you in our system.
To see an official guide to the National Tennis Rating Program, please see this link:
If you do not have a rating or have never been rated before, please come to our Rating Clinics offered on the 1st Saturday of each month at 3:45 pm. There you will be rated by one of our professional instructors and given a recommendation of classes to take based on your current level of play. These clinics are just $5 and you must register in advance as there are only 16 spaces available each month. You can register for a Rating Clinic at this link: RATING CLINIC
To inquire more about our rating policy, please contact TCSP Tennis Director, Jamie Dieveney.
Juniors needing a rating or evaluation, may contact TCSP Junior Coordinator, Lisa Moholt, for a separate appointment.
Please note that if “Call” comes up when registering for a class it means the class is full. Please call the Front Desk at (206) 522-5008 to be put on the wait list or to find other options.
The right activity for you
This high energy class is designed to help you improve stroke technique and foot positioning. Four ball machines are set up on two courts, with each machine you’ll work on a particular stroke while getting an intense cardio workout in the process. Players must be a NTRP 2.0 level or higher to join.
Formerly known as Tennis in 10… …If you’ve never picked up a racquet or have played less than a handful of times in your life, this class is perfect for you! Tennis 101 is designed to teach you the basic tennis skills quickly for the beginning or re-entry level player. This class will highlight the primary tennis shots, scoring, singles/doubles play, positioning and grips in a fun environment.
Play Instruct – Tactics
Play Instructs are designed to put you in match play situations and give you the tactical tools needed to compete. Learn positioning, movement, high-percentage vs low-percentage play, how to beat various playing styles and more!!
Play Instructs are limited to 4 players per class for singles and 5 players per class for doubles. Players must have the appropriate NTRP Rating to sign up for the class.
Instructional Clinics are group lessons designed to develop fundamentals and technique for all strokes in tennis. At every NTRP level, there are layers of improvement that players must add in order to better their ability to execute and play competitively. These clinics also cover basics of footwork and movement patterns to help players navigate their way on the court.

Fitness & Live Ball Clinics
High intensity, calorie burning tennis drills
Cardio Tennis is open to all players rated 2.0+ and is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best features of the sport of tennis with cardiovascular exercise, delivering the ultimate, full body, calorie burning aerobic workout.
Drills and circuits get the maximum out of players without the competitive pressure of playing against peers. This is about the individual workout but bonding and making new friends and playing partners for life!
Boot Camp series classes are designed for the serious player dedicated to elevating his/her game to the next level by combining Cardio Tennis with Crossfit-like exercises designed to strengthen your core, legs and dynamic movements. Boot Camp is for players rated 3.5 and above who are looking for a hybrid of cardio and strength-conditioning combined with fast-paced situational drilling run very much like a college tennis team practice.
Cardio Tennis TRX
Cardio Tennis TRX led by one of our pros and certified TRX Trainer is a super combination of on court high-intensity drilling and live ball point play, coupled with the TRX Suspension Trainer. The TRX Trainer uses your own body weight and gravity for a low-impact, high intensity workout designed to strengthen your core muscles and body. Players will participate in 4 rounds of TRX Training and tennis intervals alternating from one station to the next for the ultimate overall workout. Push yourself to limits you never knew existed! The best tennis workout you can get!
Live Ball has been described as tennis crossed with aerobics, but really, it’s much more than that. Live Ball is the tennis equivalent to a video game; a unique on-court experience made for the Xbox generation yet played by all.
Live Ball is the tennis workout that tries to check all the boxes: Fitness. Fun. Action. Camaraderie.
It’s an approach to tennis where instruction takes a back seat to fitness, where servers and returners are replaced by champions and challengers, where hushed tones and handshakes are trumped by trash talk and fist-bumps.
Live Ball is all about the moment. It’s about enjoying a sport that we all have a passion for. Players of all varieties come out to play — different skills, different incomes, different ages… —but there is one common thread: Everyone shows up ready to squeeze out every ounce of tennis they have in 75 minutes!
Wimbledon Workout is part of TCSP’s super-hyped Live Ball series. Given the frenzied, workout-obsessed world we live in, it was only a matter of time before tennis came along for the ride. 3.0 Rated Players on up are welcome to come to the most popular Adult workout in town!
Look for higher level Wimbledon Workouts coming soon replacing the Sunday Drill-n-Play series or check out the new Adult High Performance series for players rated 4.0 and better!
Off Court Training
Strength, Fitness and Mental Focus
TRX Fitness is designed to help you build your strength and core using your own body weight.

The Mental Skills Training Series is geared towards helping players of all levels become better competitors by training the mind, including visualization and relaxation exercises, systematic goal setting for player development, playing under pressure and stress management among other skills. Led by Brian Park, High Performance Director, players now have the opportunity to experience the same mental skills training the High Performance Juniors do. Custom classes are available upon request for small groups, for questions or interest please contact Brian Park at email@example.com.
