Each session will reinforce the fundamentals of the game. Tennis balls are provided, just bring a tennis racquet, water and your willingness to learn the game. NOTE: this meet-up time will change to 9:00 AM when the temperature gets too warm to play at 1:00 PM.
Feel free to contact the instructor if you have any questions.
