Adult Tennis

Tennis at GRSC offers a chance to get fit, improve your game and socialize. Adults at all levels can take group lessons and play matches, while making friends. After COVID-19, it will again be commonplace at GRSC to see a gathering of members before and after playing in the lobby, over coffee or snacks as they watch tennis. We also hope to again offer on-site childcare at no charge. And, when looking for a quick workout, there's always the ball machine! Email Head Pro, Chris Marra today!

Adult Matchplay

Sometimes, you simply want to get on the court, warm up and play points. We have season courts (contract time), when a group of people joins together at their favorite time weekly. We organize casual tennis play so you can get on the court as your schedule allows. For those seeking more intense competition, we have USTA teams for men, women and mixed at different levels. Interested in USTA? Email our USTA Coordinator. 
You can also visit one of the local USTA league websites: Eastern Connecticut USTA.

The Adult Private Group Lessons, (aka Adult Clinics) taught by our staff of full-time PTR/USPTA certified pros, follow a progressive lesson plan, continually building on skills, using drills and supervised match play to hone your game. Supervised match play enforces what you've just learned. Each week's lesson plans create a well-rounded player, with solid strokes, technique, footwork and court understanding.
