Players reach the ranks of intermediate or 3.5, as defined by the USTA National Tennis Rating Program, when they have dependable strokes with directional control on moderate shots, but still lack depth and variety; more aggressive net play, improved court coverage and developing doubles teamwork skills.
Bowens, a 20-year PTR (Professional Tennis Registry) teaching professional recommends intermediate players not only work with a tennis pro, but also learn how to read the opponents racquet, mix spins, place first serves, deliver different types of service returns and challenging volleys. According to Bowens, “These are important strategies and shots an intermediate player should practice for continued growth and to play great tennis.”
