When it comes to playing tennis in Maitland, Florida, the dress code is quite similar to that of professional tennis. Players are expected to present themselves in a professional manner and wear renowned tennis attire. This means that gym shorts and t-shirts are not allowed. All white tennis attire, including socks and hats, is mandatory at all times throughout the year.
Colored warm-up clothing is allowed from October 1 to April 30 for outdoor tennis only. All white heaters must be used for indoor play all year round. Hats cannot be worn backwards. If you're looking to get your child into tennis, most coaches will say that if they can hold a racket it's soon enough to take tennis lessons. Beginner tennis players will need tennis shoes, sportswear and a bottle of water.
Private tennis lessons are the best way to improve your game as a tennis player, as you have the opportunity to receive individual instruction from a qualified tennis coach. Tennis can be great for kids, former athletes looking to do something new, someone who is trying to stay more active, or anyone in between. A private tennis lesson is an opportunity to absorb valuable information, get as many repetitions as possible and establish a relationship with a coach who is fully committed to your improvement. If you don't have a tennis racket, you can discuss the options of borrowing one with your coach, but eventually you're better off buying a beginner's tennis racket that's right for you. Eventually, once you know that you're going to play a lot of tennis, you'll want a tennis bag with several pieces of equipment, but it's not necessary if you're a beginner tennis player. Players start playing tennis at different ages and age is no barrier to becoming a solid, or even great, tennis player.
Shoes that have been used on clay courts (Har-Tru) cannot be used in the exercise room or on machines, as clay residues damage the equipment.
