Lesson Program Policies:

Class Sizes: All classes have enrollment minimums and maximums. Registration is taken on a first come first serve basis for members. The DTC reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment. If classes are cancelled, participants will be notified as soon as possible and full refunds will be issued.

Guest: Guests are welcome to register for any tennis classes, but must wait until the designated non-member sign-up date.  Members will always have at least a one week head start on class registrations.

Cancellations & Refunds (Indoor season): All cancellations from a tennis clinic must be made at least 72 hours prior to the start of the class. The DTC will issue refunds ONLY in the case of doctor recommendation or due to moving out of the area. Refunds will not be given due to scheduling conflicts. Please check your schedules carefully before registering.

Cancellations & Refunds (Summer):Any cancellations must be made by 10 a.m. the Wednesday before your week and will have a $20 cancellation fee applied ($5 for K-2). Refunds will not be granted after 10 a.m. the Wednesday before your week.

Rescheduling Fee (Summer): Players needing to reschedule the week(s) they want will be assessed a $20 fee ($5 for 1-6).

Payments & Pro-Rating: All participants, including members and non-members must make full payment at the time they sign up. No pro rating will be given for missed classes. Pro-rated fees will only be given to players that are enrolling in a class after the start date, as long as there are still openings in that class.

Make-Ups: The DTC does not offer make-up options for missed classes except in rare situations. Make- ups are not guaranteed. Make ups will only be possible if your class meets on another day and is not full. All make-ups must be pre-approved by your instructor and occur during the same session. Make-ups are nearly impossible in the January – March session. Please check your schedules carefully before registering.

Hope College Students: Hope students are able to take free group tennis lessons by contacting Jorge Capestany at 616-395-4965. You will be put in a class based on your tennis skill and experience. This option is available whenever existing classes have room for additional enrollment. Hope students will be bumped out of classes when there are paying customers ready to fill the class spots. This free offer does not apply to Cardio Tennis classes.
