Adult Tennis Classes Now Forming in Cape Girardeau


The City of Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting tennis classes for adults, ages 18 and up.

The adult tennis classes will be held on Thursdays from March 14 through April 4 at the Arena Park tennis courts. The fee is $20 for residents and $25 for non-residents.

The class is open for players of all experience levels and will cover topics such as the proper grip, stance, swing, serve, and ball placement. Instruction sessions and practice will both be offered in the class. One of the instructors will be the experienced Donna Ryan, who is certified by the United States Tennis Association.

It is asked that all players bring their own racket, water, and appropriate clothes to play in.

Register for the classes by March 8 by contacting the Parks and Recreation Department at (573) 339-6340.
