Who Gets To Participate?

This is the best thing I've read all day. According to the Parks & Recreation webpage, the program is available to people "Age at least 16 but less than 99."

Program Description

The program description at the Parks & Rec webpage reads:

This adult program will introduce or welcome back players to the basic techniques and mechanics of tennis. The four-session program designed by Mesa County Tennis staff is a great starter course that aims to assist participants with their serve, their rally and to play the game in a structured and challenging environment. Beginner and intermediate players are welcomed.


When, Where, and How Much?

Session Four will commence on July 13, 2021. You'll meet each Tuesday and Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Lincoln Park Tennis Courts through July 22. The cost of the program is a standard charge of $52.

Put a Wiggle In It
