Tennis in Zug - lessons?

My partner and I are looking for some lessons in Zug/Baar area. Does anyone have recommendations? We have seen some websites but not really any reviews. We are both new players and need to work on fitness too.

Re: Tennis in Zug - lessons?

Hello
Try
http://www.swisstennis.ch/

Look for clubs or tennis centers near you.
They usually have an inhouse tennis coach, who offers summer courses.

As for fitness, you need to have a fitness coach or a fitness club. The tennis coach is not going to get you fit.

Lastly, make a friend who is already a tennis player (erm like me).
And offer them something in return (like babysitting my children while I teach you). etc etc etc.

Welcome to the tennis world.

Re: Tennis in Zug - lessons?

Hey there,

There is a tennis club beside Glencore in zug, on the way to Baar. I think the name of the road is Industriestrasse. Unfortunately, I don't speak german so can't help you further but if it's near you, you could pop in and check it out.

If you were coming from Zug centre to Glencore, it is on your left hand side half way down the road before you hit glencore. Petrol station other side of road.

Good luck.

Re: Tennis in Zug - lessons?

There are indoor tennis courts in the sports center just behind Zugerland which I would assume would do lessons.

I can't read German but this is the place.

Re: Tennis in Zug - lessons?

BTW,
just to let you know

Summer price for 1 court 1 hour = 20-30chf
Winter price = 50-65chf

Price of coach per hour (summer) = 50-60chf (sometimes court is included)
Winter price - = 90-110chf (court is always included)

Groups and clinics of say 5 lessons, cost a little less.

This is the swiss tennis rate average.

Re: Tennis in Zug - lessons?

That's about right for summer prices which are valid in some less popular places but the court hire is very seldom included in the hourly rate. Expect to pay: CHF60-80 for a decent one-on-one lesson. Most definitely the charges do not include tennis courts in winter. Just as an example of www.vitis.ch sports center which is a very popular hub for expats living in Aargau and Zurich with tennis, squash and badminton facilities. The certified Swiss coach will charge you as much as CHF100-130 plus tennis court CHF35-65 depending on time of the day. My wife is in business and we lowered our prices quite a bit to be able to tailor the rates to expats taste and expectations, who initially are shocked by local rates but after exploring the market, they will realize that those are the common running rates in Switzerland.
