Safety Precautions

- To allow for distancing, a limited number of students will be in each clinic.

- Students will be distanced at least 6 feet away from each other (and me) at all times during instruction, drills, and drink breaks.

- To limit the number of people congregated at the courts at one time, parents will be asked to stay in their vehicles when dropping off or picking up their child.   While the clinic is in session, parents may exit their vehicle and watch the clinic if they are properly distanced 6 feet or more from others.

No Racquet?  No Problem.

If you do not have a tennis racquet, I will be happy to provide you with a racquet for the first clinic.  At the end of the first clinic, I will recommend a racquet of the correct size and weight.

Racquets will be available for purchase at the clinic.

All canceled classes will be made up.  Click on "Make-up Dates" in the Tennis Clinics menu bar, above, for more info.

Private Lessons and Group Lessons are also available.  Contact Bob at 814-659-4908.
