Jason Hanson a USPTA and International Coaches Institute certified tennis professional with years of teaching experience is dedicated to helping people learn or improve their tennis and is specially trained to teach children.

Tennis is a great way to get or stay in shape, improve coordination and confidence, and learn sportsmanship. It’s a game for all ages that is great fun to play with family and friends. Like anything, it’s even more fun when you’re good at it.

Lessons can be private, semi-private, or group. Group classes of 3-6 people are a great way to save some money while being in a more social setting, which kids usually prefer. So, whether you want to learn just for fun, to get in shape, or to compete, Jason can help.

Lessons take place at Heilmann Regional Park (Atascadero), Hardie Park (Cayucos) and Los Osos Community Park. Loaner racquets for adults and children are available if needed.

West Coast Swing (WCS) is a dance derived from Lindy Hop. It is characterized by a distinctive elastic look that results from its basic extension-compression technique of partner connection, and is danced primarily in a slotted area on the dance floor. The dance allows for both partners to improvise steps while dancing together. Come and enjoy a fun evening of dance and great exercise.
