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:
