Beginner Player: Needs on-court experience. Has stroke weaknesses but is familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles play.

Beginner Player: Learning to judge where the ball is going although court coverage is weak. Can sustain a short rally of slow pace with other players of the same ability.

Beginner-Intermediate Player: Fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but strokes lacks execution when trying for directional control, depth or power. Needs work on depth and variety.

Intermediate Player: Has achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but still lacks depth and variety. Starting to exhibit more aggressive net play and has improved court coverage.

Intermediate-Advanced Player: Has dependable strokes, including directional control and depth on both forehand and backhand sides plus the ability to use lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success. Rallies may be lost due to impatience.

Advanced Player: Starting to master the use of power and spins; can handle pace, has sound footwork, can control depth of shots and is beginning to vary game plan according to opponents. Can hit first serves with power and accuracy and place the second serve.
