Are you unsure of where you belong in clinics or league play?

We have two pros on staff that will hit with you for a complimentary session of about 15 minutes to determine where you will be most comfortable. You may contact either Cleve Brown or Jeff Eaton for this rating session. Call the front desk at 844-1177 to leave a message for either one to call you back to schedule a time.

The United States Tennis Association also suggests the following guidelines for self-rating.

To place yourself:

A. Begin with 1.5.  Read all categories carefully and then decide which one best describes your present ability level. Be certain that you qualify on all points of all preceding levels as well as those in the level you choose.

B. When rating yourself assume you are playing against a player of the same gender and the same ability.
