Real Deal Tennis

Welcome to tennis lessons with Real Deal Tennis !! 

Our certified pros are committed to excellence as they continually improve their coaching skills, so that they can teach, motivate and train each player to reach his/her potential.

Character building in players is a high priority, as tennis can help to build perseverance, work ethic, honesty, and interactive skills.

Our lessons may incorporate (according to the needs and wants of the student/s):

technical and strategic instruction, game-based drills, fitness training, match play, video analysis, score-based evaluations, and lots of fun !!

Here is some info that you will need:


According to agreement with your tennis professional, your lessons will be at:

The Club at Crossgates, 100 Professional Drive, Brandon MS 39042, (601) 824-9974


If the weather is doubtful, please call your facility or your pro prior to the lesson to find out if it is on.  A decision will be made as soon as possible.  If the pro is out on the court, please ask the staff person to check with the pro if you think it might rain, or be too cold.  Generally, lessons will be cancelled if the predicted wind chill is 35 or less.



Tennis attire must be worn.  In particular, please wear tennis shoes (as opposed to running shoes or cross trainers).  If you do not have a racquet, we can lend you one until you get one (these racquets may not be taken home).



Please make sure that your pro knows that you have arrived.  He/she will inform you about which court you will be on for your lesson. 



You are responsible for your lesson time, even if it’s not your fault that you have to cancel.  Please contact us at least a week ahead of time if you have to cancel a lesson.  If you cancel on the same day as your scheduled lesson twice, you will be charged for one lesson.



Lesson rates for each coach are under the "coaches" pages above.



Tennis members of your facility will get a 10% discount on all instruction.

Prepaid 5 or 10 lesson packages receive a 5% discount, and 20 lesson packages will receive a 10% discount. 



Groups of 4 to 8 will normally consist of a package of pre-paid lessons.  The cost is a set amount (see pros rates) per player, and there will be as many lessons as there are players in the group (e.g. if there are 7 players, we will have 7 lessons).  Please bring a check to the first lesson. You are not eligible for partial refunds if you miss any of the lessons in the series.
