I and one of my colleague decided to learn Lawn Tennis(Field Tennis). I wanted to play it because I’ve heard it requires lot of stamina and I wanted to loose weight quickly and I think this will be good choice.
Its an expensive game. All the coaching center which we enquired near to our house is kind of expensive. Except the SRS club it, but it has only 2 court and there is lot of people in queue, And the person is planning to join us only after 3 months. The equipment is also costly. A good Racket will cost around 14000 to 18000 Rs. We checked in Decathlon and they have variety around 2000 to 3000 but we checked with few coaches and they suggest its not of good quality. Again we need to buy tennis shoes and shorts.
1. Coaching for 1 – 3 months – 9000 To 15000 Rs
2. Racket – 2000 to 18000 Rs
3. Tennis Shoes – 1200 to 5000 Rs
4. Shorts – 799 To 2000 Rs
Racket is of different kind. So while selecting racket the condition we need to know is whether we are going to use is for Occasional or Regular purpose. Occasionally would be once in a month but Regular would be playing everyday.
Here’s the price list for different coaching center.
|1||TopSpin Tennis Academy||4500/Month – 5 day classes every week
