KINES 048A Tennis II (1.5)
Kinesiology 048A is a course designed to introduce students to the basic and advanced 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 advanced 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.
Clean, safe, well-lit course space is needed to properly deliver this course. It is anticipated that two sections will be offered every fall and spring semesters with an enrollment of 30 students per section.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
