How much do tennis lessons cost?

We get asked this question a-lot. Though prices can vary from $35-90 /hr or more for outdoor lessons  you get what you pay for. There are many factors that go into the cost of a tennis lesson, but don’t make price the only factor. A great lesson can be the key to learning the proper technique and skills for the game of tennis, it’s better to be taught the right way than to fix bad form. Tennis Passport thoroughly vets the coaches we recommend, through a series of checklists.


Individual Lessons

A private lesson is a great opportunity to have a more personalized experience tailored to your tennis needs. Semi-Privates which are up to players is a great option for couples or friends with similar skill levels and a great way to lower cost.

Group Tennis Lessons

There are a variety of group lessons offered based on the objective and skill level of the class. Adult Tennis Classes usually have 4-6 players and are a very cost effective way to learn, with an average cost of $35/hr (outdoor)

Group Classes are commonly broken down by skill level or NTRP rating

  • Beginner – Players that have little to no tennis playing experience
  • Intermediate (2.0-3.0 ) – Players that have had some form of playing experience, competencies with the basic swings and scoring

  • Advanced (3.5 -4.5 ) – More advanced technical and tactical ability, often times league or former varsity players. 
  • Heavy Hitters (4.5+) – Speaks for itself 
  • Cardio Tennis – Think HITT Class meets tennis, great for any level
