Welcome to LoHi Tennis
At LoHi Tennis in Denver, Colorado, we are happy to work with all of the surrounding tennis associations, schools, and communities to provide a tennis program that is accessible, professional, and diverse. We welcome feedback, and also leave open the option to structure personalized tennis groups and privates. We look forward to you getting with us out on our tennis courts to take your game to the next level! LoHi Tennis is gearing up for another fun season of tennis. This year, we plan on relocating to the courts at Metro State University. Play starts in May and lasts through October. In April, we will offer drop-in clinics at Lake Middle School. We offer fantastic tennis programming on Har-Trutennis courts and participate in a number of special events, including clinics, teams, tournaments and themed social mixers. We encourage all to invite their friends, neighbors, and colleagues to join!

INTERMEDIATE 3.0 – 3.5
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, pace or altering distance of shots. The effective use of lobs, overheads, approach shots, and volleys is limited due to a lack of confidence.

Players at this level may start to utilize mental skills related to concentration, tactics and strategy.
ADVANCED 4.0 – 4.5
This player has dependable strokes, including directional control, depth and the ability to alter distance of shots on both forehand and backhand sides during moderately paced play, plus the ability to use lobs, overheads, approach shots, and volleys with more success. This player occasionally forces errors when serving. Rallies may be lost due to impatience. This player has begun to vary the use of pace and spins, has good movement, can control distance and depth of shots, and is beginning to develop game plans according to strengths and weaknesses. This player can hit the first serve with power and accuracy and can place the second serve.
This player has a knack for the game and plays with a high level of offensive and defensive strategy. Stroke development is no longer the focus.
