KINES 048 Tennis I (1.5)
Kinesiology 048 is a course designed to introduce students to the basic skills of Tennis. The initial focus will be twofold: stroke development and acquiring an understanding of the rules, regulations, and terminology of the game. Subsequent effort will emphasize the development of movement skills and a progression from hitting to rallying. In turn, students will learn to apply the above to live-game situations (both singles and doubles). Students will emerge from this course with beginning-level tennis skills as well as an appreciation for the requirements of higher-level tennis participation.
Students will be evaluated by (but not limited to) a combination of techniques: written examinations, skills testing, performance standards, and subjective evaluation of skill level.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
