Bob Bynum’s Match Point Tennis (BBMPT) is offering exciting new adult Tennis Programs at the Wayne Indoor Tennis Club this season. Our innovative F.L.I.P. program allows beginners and recreational players to learn tennis through playing in an enjoyable and productive environment. BBMPT is also introducing Next-Level Women’s Clinics for serious women players who are committed to improving their game. We also offer several Stroke-of-the-Week Clinics, which give intermediate and advanced players the chance to focus on different aspects of their game each week.

Custom-designed clinics and group lessons are also available upon request, along with private and semi-private lessons. (Contact bob@bbmpt.com.)

ADULT F.L.I.P. PROGRAM

Our new F.L.I.P. (Fun Learning through Instructional Play) program uses a game-based approach to help students learn tennis by playing tennis. This method accelerates the learning process by incorporating the fun of playing into every instructional element, enabling even new students to play rally games almost from the beginning.

The game-based philosophy “flips the script” on the traditional approach to tennis instruction, which preaches “technique first, then tactics later.” The F.L.I.P. program, by contrast, keeps tactics (what to do) front and center, while teaching technique (how to stroke) as a means to perform the tactic. This focus on solving “real game” problems facilitates the development of critical skills such as footwork, body awareness, and ball recognition, which enable the effective application of stroke techniques.

The F.L.I.P program also “scales down” the game to enable new and less experienced players to achieve success. The program uses different compression tennis balls to accommodate varied skill levels, enabling friends to learn and play together in the same class.
