Start/Restart Adult Tennis Program

Racine – City of Racine Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services (PRCS), in partnership with the Racine Community Tennis Association, is offering an instructional tennis program for adults ages 18 and older.

Start/ReStart is the perfect program for adults who are looking to meet new people and start or restart playing the sport of tennis.  The multi-week program will emphasize the development of basic tennis skills such as forehand, backhand, overhead serve and doubles play.  The program will also offer an opportunity to learn match play.

Two instructional sessions are being offered at Lockwood Park Tennis Courts, 4300 Graceland Blvd., on Saturdays from 1-2 p.m. Session 1 will run June 15 – July 20 and session 2 will be held July 27 – August 31.  A program fee of $60 per person, per session applies. The fee includes a program t-shirt.

Start/Restart will also host a Tennis Match Play Ladder Tournament for adults on Saturday, September 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Lockwood Park Tennis Courts. Participants will play a series of tennis matches, learn how to play a tournament ladder, and explore score-keeping and basic tactic/strategy. A participation fee of $10 per participant applies and is payable at the time of registration.

Registration for both the tennis lesson and ladder tournament programs opens on April 15, 2019.  Space is limited to 20 participants for all programs and enrollment is taken on a first-come/first-served basis.  Interested participants may register Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the PRCS office, 800 Center St, Rm. 127.
