Southern View Tennis Courts located at 3410 South
Fifth Street. Sessions will end the last week of July,

Giacomini (and his high school tennis player/helpers)
will be offering free tennis instructions for grade
school age boys and girls. All participants are asked
to bring two (2) unopened cans of tennis balls.
Tennis sessions are designed to introduce grade
school age students to tennis. The focus will be on
hand-eye coordination and the basic tennis strokes as
well as games, sportsmanship and learning to work
Tennis students will be divided into three groups.
The first group will consist of players new to tennis,
usually comprised of those under age 7 or 8. The
second group will be made up of those tennis players
who have a little experience with tennis and those
who have had tennis lessons. A third group, (for ages 7
years of age) is possible since we will have a portable
tennis net available.
Two things are very important to bring: a large,
