|| Young Players Invited to Free Youth Tennis Clinic
Angels Camp, CA...Aspiring young tennis players from throughout Calaveras and it neighboring counties are invited to take part in the 15th annual Youth Tennis Clinic to be held at Bret Harte High School, Angels Camp on Saturday, May 17 from 9 to 11 a.m.
There is no charge for the clinic that will be led by Angella Woods, a United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) professional. It is open to elementary through high school students regardless of current ability.
Assisting Woods will be local high school coaches and other tennis-teaching professionals.
“Many youth from local and surrounding counties have participated in past free clinics,” says Woods. “All players, beginners to advanced, are encouraged to participate. This is a great opportunity for junior players to meet with other aspiring tennis players in the community.”
During the free clinic players will be paired in groups according to age and ability where they will receive instruction through a variety of fun games and drills.
“It is our goal for each student to have fun while learning the skills needed to build a strong foundation for the game of tennis, states Woods. “All participants in the clinic will also be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a free racket.”
The clinic is made possible with the help of local volunteers and by its sponsors, the Murphys Area Community Tennis Association (MACTA), USPTA’s Tennis Across America, Prince Tennis, and Volkl Tennis.
The May 17 free clinic is an introduction to a summer series of tennis clinics to be offered by Woods from June 9 through July 14 in Angels Camp and Murphys.
For more information, and to sign up for the free clinic, contact Woods at (209) 728-2497, (209) 770-5076 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
