RCTA Private Lessons

RCTA Private Lessons

The RCTA offers private and semi-private lessons with several experienced teaching pros, including Head Pro Froi Silva, Program Director Ben Levin, and RCTA pros Gary Yee, and Maurice Hardy. RCTA membership is NOT required to take private lessons. 2022 Private Lesson Registration are now available.

All private lessons with any of the RCTA pros are $90.00 per hour. Semi-private (2 or 3 people) are $55.00 per person. Currently you cannot pay online for a semi-private beyond the initial $90 fee, so we will trust you to show up with difference in cash if there are 2 or 3 participants. (One Person, $90; Two People $110; Three People $165.)

How to Book, Reschedule & Cancel

NEW you may now go here to book a private lesson by day and time.

Or, if you prefer a particular pro, chose from the list below to see his or her availability and book accordingly.

There may be nothing available at the hour you want because of other RCTA programming, such as group clinics that are using the teaching court(s). For example, from Monday through Friday, after work, private lessons are generally not available because the teaching court is used for adult clinics and the demand for playing courts is too high to open a second teaching court.

Generally, one court is available for private instruction; however, during non-peak hours, a second court may be used.

Cancellation policy: If you cancel your lesson with 72 or more hours notice, you will be allowed to rebook for another session. Cancellations with less than 72 hours notice will not be refunded or re-bookable.

How to cancel a lesson: Please email ben@rcta.info, or tim@rcta.info if you need to cancel a private lesson. Any refunds will be processed through Ben. Refunds take approximately 5 to 7 business days to process.

Rain policy: If the lesson court is closed due to bad weather, you will be allowed to rebook for another session. It's always a good idea to check the RCTA Hotline to see if the courts are closed by rain. Be sure to listen to the entire message. After a rain, the first dry court will always go to the instructor, so sometimes lessons will be held for a few hours before the facility reopens. If you are rained out, you will be emailed a link to rebook on the website.

Unauthorized teaching is not allowed on public courts. Anyone giving or receiving paid lessons or hitting are liable to be to lose all playing privileges.
