We welcome you back this year to our Tennis Program. Last year we started a Tennis Club, which is free to join. Stop by one Monday night to see what it’s about and become a member. This year our events will consist of regular nights for our Tennis Club as well as once a month Tennis Clinics. Experience and equipment is not required and all our events are free. Our events are held at Lafayette Park Tennis Courts. Bring the whole family and something to drink. Our goal is to have fun while learning about the game of Tennis. So please join us this year. Check out our Facebook page and see how much fun we had last year.
