Tennis clinics are being offered
The Baldwin City Recreation Commission will be sponsoring, in conjunction with the United States Tennis Association, free tennis clinics beginning Saturday.
There is no charge for the hour and a half clinic and it is open to all ages, children and adults. The clinics are geared to individuals that have never played tennis or have played very little. This is not for the experienced player.
Clinic dates are Saturdays, June 16 and 23 at 9 a.m. and Thursdays, June 21 and 28 at 7 p.m. Participants need to wear tennis shoes (no black soled shoes, please) and bring a water bottle. The USTA will provide racquets for those who don't have one and tennis balls.
A representative from the USTA will be available on Saturday to conduct the clinic and will be assisted by local collegiate players Chad Glover and Andrea Irick. The clinics will be held at the Baker courts at Sixth and Grove.
To sign up, please call the Baldwin City Recreation office at 594-3670. Reservations are recommended for the clinics. Questions about the clinics should be directed to the recreation commission.
