Tennis Tip by Chris Shannon, Director of Tennis

Friday, 14. September 2012 9:00


Looking to improve your groundstrokes with one simple tip?  Initiate your stroke with a good shoulder turn.  When you turn your shoulders you are initiating power by creating torque in your upper body and it also helps prevent you from pushing the ball.

The Club features four Har-Tru Hydro tennis courts (two with lighting for night play) and two platform tennis courts. A full schedule of casual and competitive tennis is offered throughout the season as well as clinics and private lessons provided by the Club’s Professional Staff.

For more information about membership in the country club, residential opportunities or home-sites within the Bay Club at Mattapoisett, please contact us at 508-207-9232.
