    LESSONS AVAILABLE THIS SPRING

    The Penticton Tennis Club is happy to announce that Steve & Gillian Hunn will be providing lessons again this year at the club.  Details are below.  Note that you need to be a member of the club for the free lessons.  Registration for membership can be done on line.  Registration for the lessons should be done directly to Steve.

    The free lessons for juniors and adults would be on Wednesdays from May 2 to May 16. Juniors would be from 5:00 - 6:00 and adults will be 6:00 - 7:00. If there is a large number of younger kids we could have a separate session for them from 4:15 - 5:00. I’d also like to invite adults to stay and play after for another hour after the lessons. That would be 2 courts from 5:00 to 8:00. I suggest that we require everyone who participates in the lessons would need to be Club members.
     
    We would also like to have an open day on Saturday, May 5. It would be free to anyone and could include lessons for adults and juniors, ball machine demonstrations and organized play. It would be nice if the club could provide money for a bbq afterwards. I’m thinking of going from 1:00 to 4:00. 
     
    After the free lessons we would offer another series of 4 group lessons from May 23 to June 13. That would be 2 courts from 5:00 to 8:00.
     
    The junior summer camps would run from 10:00 to 12:00 and, based on previous attendance, we would use all 4 courts for the following 3 weeks
     
    July 16 to July 20
    July 30 to Aug 3
    Aug 27 to Aug 31
