Meet Hayato

Tennis Student Programs

Hayato started in our Adult 1.0 Clinics when he was a student and now, as a recent Alumni, you will find him regularly at the centre in our Drills programs and leagues.

They recognize that everyone progresses at different speeds, and the lessons are formatted so you can get better at your own pace depending on how comfortable you are. There’s a great variety of participants and I always felt welcome thanks to the incredible staff and coaches.

Adult 1.0-2.0 Summer Camps

What is it? Our Adult Summer Camps are designed to compact our regular clinics in to one week! We find that people progress quicker this way as they are building on their skills each day. This course will introduce players to the rules, scoring, positioning in singles and doubles play, as well as help participants improve their consistency in rallying by focusing on impact point and proper footwork. The most basic introduction of all strokes (serve, volley, and groundstrokes) will be taught, focusing again on impact point and proper court positioning. By the conclusion of the session, participants will know how to begin a match and play points using the serve and return. Players will further develop skills and ball controls necessary to challenge opponents to be consistent in common situations including baseline rallying, serve and return, approach, and net play. With multiple levels of adult summer camps, start in the 1.0-2.0 and progress at your own pace.
Format: Each session has 1 coach and a maximum of 6 participants.
Online registration not available. Registration must be in person and with a valid UBC Student Card.
