Kids Tennis Club begins Aug. 4
The Versailles-Woodford County Parks and Recreation Department will offer a Kids Tennis Club on Tuesday evenings in August for boys and girls ages 5 to 10. Lessons begin Aug. 4 at the Woodford County Park tennis courts (or indoors at Falling Springs Recreation Center if weather is bad). Children ages 5 to 8 will meet at 5:30 p.m., and ages 9 and 10 will meet at 6:30 p.m. The cost is $5 a child a week or $15 a child for all four weeks.
"Kids can come out on the Tuesdays that work best for them, give tennis a try and find out if it's something they enjoy," said Rainey Johns, assistant director of the Versailles-Woodford County Parks and Recreation Department. "We'll even have tennis racquets for kids to borrow if needed."
The clinic will feature the 10 & Under format which uses smaller courts, shorter racquets and balls that bounce lower. Preregistration is not required, but parents are asked to contact Johns at (859) 873-5948, Ext. 226, or at firstname.lastname@example.org with the names and ages of children who plan to attend along with an email address.
