UTA Reward Partners
- Do you have to be a University Student or Staff member to participate?
- Do you have to be a member of a University Tennis Club?
No. We work closely with the tennis clubs at each University, and would recommend you join as they’re all really cool, but you don’t have to be a member. However, if you are a member, you’ll receive 10% off the price of group tennis lessons with us.
- Do you have to have played tennis before?
No. Many of our participants have never played before, but have come to the right place to learn. We specialise in teaching those with little to no experience. We have classes tailored to all levels and playing experience and also limit group classes to a maximum of 5 people, meaning you get a more individualised experience.
- How much do lessons cost?
Our lessons are cheaper that most around Melbourne. Our 6 week program is $190 (just over $20 per hour) for students, with 12 weeks of lessons being $355 (under $20/hr) if you sign up at the start of the semester. Don’t forget though, if you’re a member of the University tennis club, you save 10% on these prices.
- What happens if it rains?
For a full explanation of class cancellation, we’d recommend you view the terms and conditions. Basically though, we’ll let you know as early as possible if the class won’t go ahead due to poor whether. We will then either reschedule the entire class to another week or time that suits everyone, or allow you to come to a pre-existing class at another time that suits you.
- How do I know which class I should join?
We have a guide on the timetable that will help you make the decision. We also work closely with the tennis club during their ‘Grading Days’, which involves prospecting participants coming down to the courts and having a hit. These days are completely free and available for everybody.
Even then, if we begin lessons and find that you’re better suited to a different level, we can generally be really flexible and simply put you in a more appropriate class the following week.
- Do we need to have our own racquet?
No. We can supply you with a racquet each lesson. We would suggest you take the plunge and buy your own one eventually (something we’ll be happy to help you with), but for any lesson you need a racquet, we’ll lend you one.
- How many people per class?
We limit our standard group classes to 5 people. Some class may even run with only 4 in them. There will be occasions however, where we’ll be required to have six in a class when doing makeup lessons due to poor whether. We try to avoid this.
Private lessons are just for you, unless you want to split the cost with a friend.
Matchplay sessions typically have about 8-10 people, but due to the nature of the class may run across two courts.
