Auburn to Offer Tennis Program for Children and Adults

The city is launching its summer youth and adult tennis program through the parks and leisure department.

The city of Auburn is pleased to announce it has two summer sessions on the calendar for a new tennis program, offered through the city’s parks and leisure department.

The two sessions are scheduled for Monday evenings, June 4 through 25 and July 2 through 23. All classes will be taught by Professional Tennis Registry-certified instructor Josh Honea at the City of Auburn Tennis Courts behind City Hall. Classes are broken into three divisions based on age, and include:

  • Little Tennis (ages 4 to 8 years):  For beginning players with little to no experience. This will introduce pint-sized players to the game of tennis in a fun lesson format. Sessions will be hosted from 5 to 6 p.m.
  • Developmental Tennis (ages 9 to 12 years): Perfect for junior players with some experience, these classes will include further development of basic strokes and techniques with drills and games. Sessions will be hosted from 6 to 7 p.m.
  • Competitive Tennis (ages 13 and older): This class is perfect for players of all abilities who wish to strive towards higher level of play through competition. Classes will be hosted from 7 to 8 p.m.

Registration for all three divisions and both sessions is due May 31. The fee is $30 per session. To register for group sessions or to learn more about this fun new offering in Auburn, please contact either of the following:

A word from City of Auburn Parks & Leisure Director Gary Schussler: "We are looking to continue offering programs and activities for the community here in Auburn, and this was something that I felt was a perfect fit. I was introduced to PTR certified instructor Josh Honea who was also a tennis player at Shorter College and is the director of tennis for Barrow County Leisure Services. From there we got together to come up with a program format that we felt might work in Auburn. This is our first time implementing it so we are excited and are hoping it is received well by those in the community who may want to get involved in tennis. "
