Sports can put the activity back into summer, and at Helen Meyer Community Center, tennis is the name of the game. Children ages 6 to 12 can learn the fundamentals of tennis on Saturdays for two four-week sessions beginning July 6 and Aug. 8 at the community center, 4525 New Forest Drive. Cost is $18 per class, per session.
Children ages 6 to 8, also known as the Short Shots, practice from 8 to 9 a.m. while the Super Shots, ages 9 to 12, take the court from 9 to 10 a.m. The group lessons focus on the beginning skills of the game with the emphasis on fun. Children need to be hydrated before practice and bring water or a non-caffeinated sports drink with them to the court.
Those interested in youth tennis lessons can call the Helen Meyer Community Center at 455-7723 or visit the Web site at www.accessclarkcounty.com/parks.
