DESCRIPTION OF PLAY LEVELS: We rely on the INTEGRITY of the coaches and program administrators to place players in the appropriate level to the best of their ability. Below are general descriptions of the different play levels and rules to guide you in placing your players correctly so players have as competitive of matches as possible to maximize skill development and enjoyment.

 

Novice– Generally, this player is fairly consistent when hitting medium paced shots, but is not comfortable with all strokes and lacks execution when trying for directional control, depth, or power. Player is improving court coverage and can sustain a rally and serve with consistency. On ground strokes, player needs to improve control of height, depth, direction, and speed.
 

Intermediate  – They have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots. Player can use lobs, overheads, approach shots, and volleys with some success and occasionally forces errors when serving. They exhibit more aggressive net play, have improved court coverage, and are developing teamwork in doubles. Player is starting to recognize opportunities to attack short balls by coming to net. Player is developing more spin and power on the serve and seldom double-faults.

 

Advanced – This player has developed use of power and spins and can handle pace. They have sound footwork, can control depth of shots, and attempt to vary game plan according to the opponents. They can hit first serves with power and accuracy and place the second serve. They tend to over hit on difficult shots; aggressive net play is common in doubles.
