Our Adult Programs

IRC provides adult players a variety of playing opportunities no matter their playing level, schedule, or level of competitiveness. Programs are offered in either Session or Drop-In formats. Some clinics may consist of players with different skill levels.

Sessions: Registering for sessions allows players to have group continuity, a guaranteed spot each week, and a low player to teaching pro ratio. Players are committing to an entire session (no drop-in). Membership is required unless otherwise noted.

Drop-Ins: No commitment needed – single day registration. Membership is not required but IRC members will have priority. Guest fees may apply.

Session 1 August 15 – October 16, 2022 Registration Open: July 19

Player Ratings

IRC uses the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) to help adult players find the program that best fits their level of play. For more information on NTRP ratings please click here (please note you will be redirected to a USTA site). 

If you are unsure about your NTRP rating, members may request a complimentary player evaluation with an IRC Teaching Pro. Please contact Member Services at (317) 849-2531or irc@indyracquet.com
