Avya was the first to pick up the game, starting with private lessons led by Director of Tennis, Teg Lozano, and moving into the Joeys program, an introductory class for younger players featuring a smaller court and shorter racquets.
“Avya always looks forward to her tennis lessons,” added Goldie, and it wasn’t long before Avya’s excitement for the sport rubbed off on her parents. “My husband and I also started taking lessons from Teg, and we have a great time. We had never played the sport before so it was a new experience for us. Initially it was overwhelming,” Goldie admitted, “But soon enough, we were getting comfortable hitting the balls and ‘following through’, in Teg’s words!”
Soon, Goldie and Parry advanced to group clinics at the club, beginning with Tennis 101. Tennis 101 is a 4-week program hosted at CDT-managed locations across the country and is designed as a “first step” to introduce the fundamentals to those who have never played before.
“Now, we are in Tennis 201!” Goldie beamed.
As they’d hoped at the outset of their membership, the Pandhers regularly enjoy tennis as a family these days.
