Sports & Recreation Notes

Tennis in the Parks is the tennis program where kids play while they learn! Led by an approved USTA NetGeneration tennis coach, the program will focus on developing the skills to serve, rally and play – so it’s perfect for beginners. Once the skills are there, participants will play fun matches with other players in the program. This program uses modified tennis balls, age-appropriate rackets, court sizes, and the latest fun and engaging activities that help players successfully learn and play the game quicker! All players in their first session receive and keep a new age-appropriate racket, ball, and Net Generation tee shirt! The program runs from May 1 through June 12.
