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.
