Rain delays: we’re fortunate to live in a beautiful Lowcountry sub-tropical climate. When rain does occur, it’s usually for short periods of time and has a minimal effect on our training schedule. During such rainy weather, our students train at our Smith Stearns Sports Performance Center and participate in a combination of educational tennis workshops and physical fitness exercises. No refunds are given for suspension of on-court play due to rain. Our gym workouts and fitness are a part of the Smith Stearns tennis program.
