Hi Echo Ridge Tennis Community, 

I needed to resend this information because it was unclear which days of the week the Jr. tennis lessons were on.  They are on Mondays and Wednesdays only.  Sorry, that’s the only days that are available with the very busy Adult and Junior Echo Ridge tennis fall schedule.

If you have any questions, please respond to Randy Shute at  DO NOT reply to this email as it will go to the Echo Ridge Communications Chair and not to me.  Feel free to email me or contact me at (678) 644-6370

Below is the Echo Ridge fall Jr. tennis program information with the updated dates and times.  I’ve attached the corrected MS Word version of the form so please print that and mail it back to me ASAP. 

Fall classes are filling up quickly so please don’t delay in registering.  I actually had to turn some kids away last season because I just didn’t have the courts or the assistants to help so if you want your child in ERRC Jr. tennis lessons this fall, please enroll them immediately to reserve their spot. 

I’m looking forward to seeing your child in tennis this fall!

2017 Fall Junior Tennis Lessons


Randy Shute, ERRC Member and USPTA P1 tennis pro, will provide members with Fall Jr. tennis lessons.  These lessons will last 10 weeks and will be divided into two groups: Beginner and Intermediate/Advanced.  Beginner lessons will be provided to 5-9 year olds.  Beginner players (M/W)have little to no experience yet and have difficulty sustaining a 4-6 shot rally across the big (full-sized) net.  Beginners will practice on at least 2 smaller QuickStart nets and have myself and probably 3 helpers to assist.  The intermediate/advanced group (M/W) will be for 9-14 year old players who can sustain a decent rally across the big net and also serve and have some success with volleying.  We will work on serving form including using the proper Continental grip!  Basic skills are taught to beginners and we’ll introduce serving both overhand and underhand on the 8U and 10U courts.  Advanced skills and techniques are taught to intermediate and advanced players.  Fun games are played to teach your kids the skills to play tennis for life!


Junior Tennis Session Dates:                                                                     Monday & Wednesday


Beginner Class: August 21 - October 25 (M/W)                                        5:15 pm - 6:15 am (Age 5-9)

Intermediate/Advanced Class: August 21 - October 25 (M/W)                6:15 pm - 7:15 pm (Age 9-14)


Sign up for lessons twice a week or choose to attend one day per week.  If you choose one day per week, please be consistent and come on that day only.  While I’m flexible with makeups, if not enough players show up for one class but overload another class, it really messes with my assistant schedule.  If lessons are cancelled because of rain, make-up lessons can be taken during subsequent lesson weeks.   In case of excessive rainouts, we will have make-up lessons on Fridays or at the end of the season.  We’ll just have to be flexible with the weather.


There are no refunds - just make up lessons.
