Tennis programs at Garden of the Gods

Game, Set, Match!

Looking to better your skills? Our USTA certified tennis pros are ready to help you advance your game and take the courts by storm. The key to playing great tennis is sound technique. Tennis is a tactical game, and if you’re able to execute strategically, then you’re on your way to becoming an accomplished player. A private lesson or camp with an experienced, certified teacher can take your game to the next level.

The Tennis Club at the Garden of the Gods offers private lessons, semi-private lessons, and camps for individuals or groups of all ages, juniors, and adults. A private lesson can give you targeted help on one particular area of your game or help you develop all your strokes. You could also focus on tactical play and mental toughness. All these areas can be covered with a few private lessons or over an extended period of regular lessons.
