When staying in Corolla Light, we always take a few tennis lessons here. I have enjoyed the tennis pros and my adult lessons. My children have enjoyed their lessons. You must wear white soled tennis shoes. You may not play without. If you need a racquet, or just want to try a new one, the pro shop is happy to... More

We enjoy the inside clay courts on raining days and the many outside courts on great sunny days. I have a son that started playing in the junior tournaments for... More

He worked with me on racket grip and how to move from the really position to forehand and backhand! I had a great experience! One that... More

(Last summer I attended Van der meer tennis clinic in Hilton Head). IB took much time explaining how to correct my strokes. The drills... More

Just want to say that Jim Scott has assembled an outstanding staff. He's very committed to improving tennis in our area. We took our entire summer teaching staff to Corolla Light for a staff retreat, and Jim conducted a QuickStart clinic for them. He was wonderful: enthusiastic, knowledgeable. I know that, if I wanted a lesson, either for myself or... More

My friend and I decided to sign up for 2 hours of instruction. Justin was very helpful with tips for improving our serves, forehand, and backhand. We had never had "professional" lessons before today. We plan to go back before we leave for additional instruction. Top Notch & VERY professional. I would highly recommend this facility.
