Kids Play Day a big success!

Twenty kids showed up for the Kids play day on Oct. 8.  They played 4 game sets with an ATA coach assigned to each court to help their games to run smoothly and correctly.  Prizes and food were offered and weather cooperated nicely!  Comments from parents were especially appreciative of the way coaches worked with the children on the courts during play. We’d like to thank ATA members Nell, Grady, Sal, Greg, Charles, Janet, Joe, Evelyn, John, and parents for all the help with this event.

Summer Kids Camp—a real hit!
The summer kids tennis camp is in full swing with a dozen kids participating and a half dozen coaches helping with instruction.  ATA is using a small USTA grant to help run this program.  Linda and Charles are using high school players as role models and instructors.  This is a great opportunity for children to learn tennis!!!  

The second session will run for 2 weeks, M W F from 9:00-10:00, beginning July 11.  Sign up through the Alamogordo Parks and Rec at the swimming pool.  Please encourage any children ages 7-12 to sign up for these lessons.
