Tennis

Come join TYPA tennis and learn how to serve, volley and hit a ground stroke! It’s a great opportunity for you to learn various tennis techniques with our outstanding tennis coaches.

Tennis students will need to purchase their own tennis rackets to be used for tennis lessons. Tennis or sports shoes must be worn to avoid injuries and students will also need to wear proper sportswear in class.

Tennis Lessons

Grades 1-12

The TYPA tennis program comprises FOUR DIFFERENT TENNIS LESSONS OPTIONS:

TENNIS CLINIC Three coaches collectively instruct 15-20 students of all levels. Tennis clinic lessons are only offered from 2:45-3:40pm (Mon-Fri). We also offer a special tennis clinic lesson on Friday 3:45-4:40pm for grade 6 and older students. At the beginning of each semester students will be assigned into different groups based on their assessed level and age. Tennis students will not be able to choose their own instructor. To be fair, each student may only enroll in two tennis clinic classes per week.
PRIVATE One on one
SEMI-PRIVATE One coach with 2 students
GROUP One coach with 4-6 students

All Private, Semi-private and Group lessons are scheduled between 3:45-7:15pm on weekdays, and on Saturdays from 7:00am-7:00pm.

All tennis lessons are scheduled in the following manner: Towards the end of each semester, re-registration for continuing students takes place. During open registration, any available spaces remaining are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. If a desired coach or time is unavailable, names are placed on a waiting list. All waiting lists and special requests are purged at the end of each semester.

Partnering up

If you sign up for a semi-private lesson, please endeavor to find a partner for yourself beforehand. If you cannot find a partner, please sign up for a private lesson initially and TYPA will try to help you find a partner at your level and age.
If you sign up for a semi-private or group lesson, but your partner(s) decide to cancel or reschedule to another time slot, your tuition will be adjusted according to the number of students registered for that class.

Tennis Courts Usage

Please note that TYPA tennis lessons will be held on the TAS Rubber D area.
The tennis lessons from 3:50-5:20pm on Mondays will be held at the Taipei Japanese School (across from TAS). TYPA will walk younger children over to the TJS campus if parents wish.
There will be times during the year when tennis lessons may be cancelled due to usage conflicts with the TAS tennis courts or the Rubber D. Members should note that TAS’s curricular programs take priority over TYPA recreational activities. Please take this into consideration when signing up for TYPA tennis programs.

Tennis Waiting List

When TYPA tennis lessons are full, members can fill out a tennis waiting list form and submit it to the TYPA office. If any spot becomes available, the next member on the waiting list will be contacted. According to the withdrawal policy, this usually happens during the first two weeks of the semester. The waiting lists expire at the end of the semester.

Cancellation Policy

After the second week of the semester, no credits or refunds will be given due to withdrawals and no schedule changes will be allowed. There will be no credits or refunds for missed tennis clinics, group lessons and semi-private lessons. Private lessons are allowed one cancellation per semester but the cancellation must be done at least 24 hours in advance. Please note, canceled tennis lessons will not be made up

Regarding injury cancellation, we will only issue a refund to an injured student if they withdraw for the rest of the semester. Please provide a medical certificate when applying for an injury refund. Once the injury application has been submitted, the student will lose priority registration for the re-registration period
