EVRPD Receives Tennis Grant
We are excited to announce that the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD) has been awarded a program grant from the Colorado Youth Tennis Foundation. The award will be designated for our summer youth tennis lessons, which will go toward instructor costs and equipment. This summer we are excited to offer Ten and Under Tennis Lessons for 5 – 10 year olds. This is a chance for children to learn real tennis while having a lot of fun. Ten and Under Tennis follows almost every other youth sport in that it uses racquets, balls and courts that are sized for children so they enjoy the game right from the start.
EVRPD’s 10 and Under Tennis Lessons will have three trained instructors who have attended an interactive Coach Youth Tennis workshop, taught by the National USTA-certified trainers. This workshop highlights skill development, progressions and child-centered activities. In addition to effectively using the red, orange and green balls in the development of a player, the workshop incorporates athletic development activities, instant rally progression for all ages, and fun games and drills – including the top 10 games every coach should know.
