On Oct. 1 Youth Tennis classes will begin in Cape Girardeau, hosted by the City of Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department, for any child ages 8 – 12.
Classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Arena Park tennis courts. The cost is $20 for a resident of Cape Girardeau and $25 for a non-resident.
The instructor will focus on both practice and instruction and students will learn about proper grip, stance, swing, serve, and ball placement. They will also learn to control the depth and power of their swings.
Students are asked to bring their own tennis racket, water, and to wear appropriate clothing and shoes.
Please register by Sept. 24. Registration can be completed by calling Parks and Recreation at (573) 339-6340.
