Ever wonder what separates tennis greats like Roger Federer, Steffi Graf and Rod Laver from your average club player? And what could you do to instantly raise your game?   

ASME Ontario is proud to present “The Physics and Mechanics behind a Successful Tennis Player”!

We will explore the rules of the game and how you could apply basic geometry to maximize your control of the court.  We will analyze the basics and advanced details behind a professional’s proper stroke mechanics in the forehand and backhand, and how one uses their body to maximize the power and control of their shot.  And of course, apply the skills learned by rallying with each other, doing tennis drills with a professional, and playing various tennis games (e.g. hit the various targets).

We’re inviting our members to join us for a nice weekend afternoon, learning and playing tennis under the guidance of coaching professional, Michael Reyes!

Various tennis racquets and water bottles will be provided!
