Van der Meer Tennis is a brand of itself! The complex, located in Shipyard Plantation off Pope Avenue, is well appointed and maintained. I had the opportunity to receive instruction for Advanced Drills on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of Labor Day week.
All of the Pros were professional, extremely competent and very personable. A Pro named Andy was the one I had the chance to receive instruction from and he was very talented.
I’ve been playing since high school and have an NTRP of 4.0-4.5. Andy’s guidance allowed me to drastically improve some very basic and foundational strokes through the two hour drill sessions. While the drills are not meant to impart instruction one would receive during a private lesson, Andy’s instruction during the drills allowed me to make minor adjustments which yielded major improvements in my game.
Be prepared to sweat! The Advanced Drills are physically challenging but I had a 79 year old in our class who kept up with us “youngsters” admirably! I plan on returning again next year!
