Mike Kobbervig will once again direct the park district's youth tennis program and teach our kids the fundamentals, techniques and rules of the game.
Four class sessions will be offered for players in the following age groups: 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and 11 years old and up.
Kobbervig will use the USTA's Quickstart program to give our youth players the opportunity to feel more comfortable with the game and achieve more success while having more fun in the process.
Players need to wear clean, comfortable athletic shoes and appropriate loose fitting athletic clothing. Players can bring their own racket or we can provide rackets for kids to use. If you are interested in purchasing a racket but are unsure what to buy, we can size your child at the first practice to assist in helping you pick the appropriate equipment.
Please note that tennis sessions lost due to inclement weather will not be rescheduled. Additionally, we hope not to have to reschedule tennis dates due to conflicts but will notify you promptly if our practice schedule changes. Lastly, please note that we are adjusting our tennis schedule to dates later in the season to avoid some of the wet weather we typically experience in June.
