The Cost of tennis lessons in the Santa Clarita Valley

May 3rd, 2024 | 3 min. read

Although you can learn a lot about tennis by playing with a friend or taking a group class, nothing compares to a private lesson with a qualified coach.

An instructor’s undivided attention can give you the most detailed guidance so you can improve your skills better and faster. The fewer people on the court, the better your instruction. You get all the balls, specialized tips, and verbal cues designed for you.

The Paseo Club is a social club in the Santa Clarita Valley that offers tennis, pickleball, fitness, and swimming facilities. Although we have a complete tennis program, we are not the only local resource for finding private tennis lessons.

In this article, we share the benefits of private tennis lessons, who the local instructors are, their fees, and how to select the right coach for you.

Taking private tennis lessons is a way to invest in yourself and your skills. It can help you to refine your technique, develop more power, minimize your chance of injury, and become a more formidable player on the court.

Meet or talk with multiple coaches before hiring one. Ask them about their history in playing and teaching, their philosophy, certification, where they offer lessons and their fees.

When you hire a coach, you not only get a hitting partner and instructor, but you also gain a resource for learning about tennis activities in your area. A coach is often the first to know about tennis events, socials, and playing opportunities— all benefits of private tennis lessons.

If you want to join a tennis community with club amenities, then the Paseo Club may be just what you are looking for. With tennis and pickleball courts, a junior Olympic pool, fitness classes, and gym facilities, there are several ways to be active and fit. The cafe, childcare, and spa just make your visit to the club that much more enjoyable.
