Register your child for the City of Delta's Start Smart tennis program. The program is offered Saturday mornings at 9 a.m. on Sept. 9, 16, 23 and 29. This introductory program is for children ages 5-7. Start Smart tennis prepares children and their parents for organized tennis without the threat of competition or the fear of getting hurt. Age-appropriate equipment from Head® and Penn® is used in teaching ground strokes, serving, volleying and running/ability.
Pre-registration is required by Sept. 6 and costs $45 for parent and child. Participants get to keep their equipment. To register, call 874-0923. Class size is limited to 20 kids, so sign up now.
