Tennis
Boys & Girls Grades 3-4, 5-6

Marcy’s Tennis Academy will be instructing a 6 week after school program this Spring. This tennis program uses features from the USTA’s 10 and Under Tennis program. With 10 and Under Tennis, balls bounce lower, don't move as fast through the air and are easier to hit. Tennis racquets are sized for small hands, and courts are smaller and easier to cover. By using this format, the benefits are immediate, and within a short time kids are rallying, playing games, and wanting to play even more tennis. This means kids will have more fun and less frustration. A tennis pro will be provided by Marcy’s Tennis Academy to instruct the children. Classes will be held Thursdays, April 27th-June 1st.
