Limit: 10 students, per class.

Free clinic T-shirt for every student!

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.

Miss a Class?  No Problem. If you have to miss a Little Grippers or Little Kahunas class during the Summer session, you may attend any Summer session class on a Tuesday or a Wednesday as your make-up. 

Junior and High School clinics are only offered once per week, so there are no make-up classes available. However, high school students may attend an Adult Clinic class as a make-up.

Clinic classes that are canceled because of inclement weather (or other reasons) will be made up.  Click on "Make-up Dates" in the Tennis Clinics menu bar, above, for the make-up class schedule.

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