Josh is back! And eager to improve your game . . .

After a long wait due to the Covid-19 restrictions throughout the Upper Valley, River Valley Club (RVC) is providing group clinics and lessons for players of all ages and abilities in Eastman beginning the week of July 26.

Does your backhand look like this? If not, you want to keep reading to find out how Grantham’s Josh Holt can give your game an extra edge this summer. Josh returns to Eastman for his second year as our pro with something for everyone! So, it’s time to follow-through on that Covid-summer resolution to improve your swing.

Beginning July 29, group clinics will be offered weekly for players of all skill levels—those of you who are just an ace or two short of being a regional champ to those who have never held a racquet before. If you don’t have a USTA rating—and that would be most “beginners” and some “intermediates”—just ask Josh ( which group would be the right fit for you.

Adult Beginners (2.0 to 3.0) – Fridays, 5 – 6:30 p.m.

Adult Intermediates (3.0 to 4.0) – Thursdays, 5 – 6:30 p.m.

Adult Advanced (4.0+) –  Wednesdays, 5 – 6:30 p.m.

Juniors (ages 8 -12) – Wednesdays 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.

Juniors (ages 8 – 12) – Fridays 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.

Adult clinics are open to anyone over age 18 and limited to eight players. Clinics will run if a minimum of four players sign up on by noon the day of the clinics. Participants can pay by cash, check, or ECA charge at each session. No-shows will be charged for the missed clinic.

No racquet? No excuse. Eastman will provide a limited number of racquets for players’ use during clinics and lessons. 

So, what will it cost for you or your child to become the next Eastman Ace?

$25/person (session with 4-6 Adults)

$20/person  (session with 7-8 Adults)

$40/person (Juniors)

In case of inclement weather, or sign-ups of fewer than three participants, clinics may be subject to cancellation. So, sign up early to assure your spot in these clinics with a pro who received rave reviews last year from Eastman’s players.

Prefer to go solo? Or with a trusted friend or two . . . or more?

Josh is available for private and groups lessons on Eastman’s courts. Schedule directly with Josh at .  These differ from clinics in that you arrange for the players in your group and sessions are only one hour in duration. 

Private – $82 for 1 hour session

Semi-private – $46.50/pp/hour

Group of 3 players – $31/pp/hour

Group of 7-8 players – $15/pp/hour
