Cardio Tennis is a fun group activity for anyone looking for an exciting new way to burn calories & interact with others outside of the gym. It is a high energy fitness class that delivers a full body, calorie burning aerobic workout. Most women can burn 300-500 calories per hour, and men burn between 500-1000. Not only are you getting a great workout, but you are also learning a skill and training for tennis. This is not a lesson, there will be no instruction provided. Sorry, no Entry level players allowed. At Empire Tennis we will provide workout music, green-dot balls, and a positive attitude. So come on out and try your first Cardio Tennis class for FREE! You have nothing to lose but a few hundred calories! Click on the schedule and it will take you directly to the registration page.

2021 ADULT SINGLES LEAGUE

June 1st - August 20th, 2021

Playoffs - August 23rd - September 3rd

Empire Tennis Academy offers an outdoor Adult Singles League for ages 16 & above starting the week of Memorial Day, Tuesday, June 1st, ending the week of August 20th, from 7-9pm on Monday through Thursdays. Organized by the Director of Tennis, Jason Speirs, we welcome any player that is confident they can get their serve IN!!

This is our third year for ASL, and second using UTR and it’s been great using UTR because the rating system eliminates gender and age, leaving just ability. Everyone is rated on the same scale. A UTR 4 is the same whether a male or female, whether New York or California. You will be rated on the same scale as the top pro’s in the world, college kids, and high school players. If you do not have a UTR rating it’s ok! When you register, UTR will ask you some questions to help give you an initial rating. This is just a starting point. The more matches you play, the more accurate it becomes.

 

The league season is 13 weeks long, followed by a semi-final Playoffs for those that play enough matches to qualify. Winners of the Playoffs get FREE Singles League matches for upcoming seasons. Each Friday you will be asked for your availability for the upcoming week. The more nights you have available, the more likely I am to find you a match. You will be notified Sunday evening which night works best based on your availability. Participants are not required to play each week, although we welcome and encourage you to do so. Depending on your results, your rating can move up or down. You’ll play an assortment of matches against players above, below, and in your same rating. All matches will be paired at the discretion of the Director of Tennis. Balls are provided for each match.
