The City of Madison will hold its first 10 and under Tennis Clinic on Saturday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of Madison’s City Hall. Kids ages 5 to 10 are invited for an hour of fun, plus learning about the game of tennis.
This is a free clinic with all the equipment furnished. Parents can sign up their kids for the clinic either at City Hall or at The Mail Room (173 NE Range Ave). Signing up for the clinic will help clinic officials know how many kids to expect. If parents are unable to sign up their kids, they can simply bring their kids to the clinic to join in on the fun. Parents and friends are welcomed to bring their folding chairs.
Teaching the clinic will be City Commissioner Ina Thompson and Charlie A. Jackson of Madison.
For more information, phone Thompson at (850) 445-7755 or (850) 973-2328.
