After School Tennis

Hello everyone,

Well our first after school tennis program was a huge success.  In all 35 children, ages 5th-8th grade, attended a two week camp to learn how to play.  Pennsville Memorial High School head tennis coach Dan LaMont instructed the group along with players from his team.  Pennsville Recreation Department sponsored the program which was heavily advertised in the schools prior to summer break.  At the conclusion of the camp, Dan conveyed to the Recreation Department he was thrilled with the kids overall excitement and enthusiasm for the sport.  The courts are open to the public 7 days a week, until sunset, and are heavily used.

In the picture posted you can see the kids stretching prior to starting their day.
