TENNIS LESSONS BEGIN
The Downieville Tennis Program will begin Thursday June 29, 2017 Lessons are every Tuesday and Thursday. Participants from ages 5 through 11 will take to the court at 8:00 a.m. and those from ages 12 through 17 will start at 9:00 a.m. . Some exceptions will be made for families with two or more children to save on shuttling. If you have a child between the ages of 5 and 17 that would like to participate in this summer’s program, please call Paul at 530-289-1018 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prior notice is not required. You may bring your child on any of the scheduled days. There is no fee for this opportunity although donations are very welcome.
The operating costs for this summer opportunity is approximately $1,500. This allows two high school instructors and an adult supervisor. We need to replace the deck leading into the tennis shed. We have not been able to secure a grant for the past two years and our operating funds have shrunk to the point that this program, without community support, will be unable to continue this program much longer.
The lessons of courtesy, respect and cooperation will continue to be emphasized along with the many other skills that organized life-long sports can foster. Board members of the tennis organization are Paul Douville, Tom Potter, Bryan Davey, Kristy Folsom, and Tim Beals.
