Start Smart Tennis teaches children the fundamentals that they would need to know to eventually play organized tennis. This is taught in an environment that is free from the threat of competition or injury. The children will be taught how perform ground strokes, serves, volleying, and running and agility skills. Age-appropriate equipment will be used during training.

Registration ends May 27 and costs $30 for Cape Girardeau residents and $35 for non-residents. To register contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 573-339-6340.
