The USTA National Campus has introduced a new promotion intended to attract and engage new players in the local area. The “Free 30” initiative includes a free, 30-minute hitting session with one of the campus’ teaching pros for any player who has never participated in USTA National Campus programming.
Players of all ages and abilities can take advantage of this new offer as it is designed to create a more personalized introductory experience for those participating in campus programming for the first time.
The 30-minute session will include tips and evaluation, and, at the conclusion of the session, the pro will recommend classes and programs based upon the players’ skill and interest. They can also make recommendations about equipment purchases at the Pro Shop and guide the player through registration.
For children, the pro can also discuss with parents different programming options based upon the player’s desired pathway.
There is no commitment to sign up for programming, and all guests will receive a welcome bag. Please visit www.ustanationalcampus.com/freethirty for more details.
For both new and returning players, the campus fall programming is in full swing with options for everyone. The campus continues to adhere to specific health and safety protocols in order to ensure the safety of all guests and staff.
Continuing this fall for all youth programming is added Friday play opportunities, which were a new addition earlier this year. For Nemours Family Zone programs, these Friday Fun Days will give players an opportunity to put their weekly instructional practice into action, developing their match skills with the support of the USTA National Campus coaching staff.
For Youth Development players, the Friday Match Play will pair players with opponents of similar age and ability, with a particular focus on strategy and tactics during play. Coaches will provide consistent feedback during play to all participants regarding their patterns of play, competitive skills, and style of play. These practice matches will complement the daily training program and are available to players who participate in Campus Youth Varsity, Campus Green Performance, and Campus Youth Performance programs.
For adult players, all of the traditional programming options will be available. The biggest change that players will notice is that a number of formats will be moving to 1.5-hour sessions. This includes Singles & Doubles Training, Singles & Doubles Live Ball, and Advanced Drills. All cardio classes and Innovation Clinics as well as Tennis 101 and 102 will remain one hour in length.
For more information on the complete list of programming options for both kids and adults or to register, please visit reserve.USTANationalCampus.com.
Players can also find a comprehensive update about the campus’ health and safety protocols on the campus website.
And, as a reminder, the USTA National Campus Pro Shop is also open, featuring the newest product releases from top brands as well as apparel and other tennis gear. In addition, the Racquet Bar offers industry-leading stringing, racquet customization, and racquet consultation.
