Tennis returns Spring 2018!


WEST SPARTANBURG YOUTH TENNIS

SIGNUP AT D5REBELS.COM

Starting Saturday September 16, 2017

Beech Springs Courts

 

 

Welcome to West Spartanburg Youth Tennis!  We are very excited to bring an accessible youth tennis program to the area during the fall of 2017 and possibly spring of 2018.  Here are our guiding principles:

 

• All youth are welcome, there will be a scholarship fund for those unable to pay.  We want all youth interested in tennis to come out!

 

• If you are slightly younger or slightly older than our stated 3rd grade to 7th grade, we will try to work something out.

 

• West Spartanburg Youth Tennis is not limited to D5 and D6. Everyone is welcome!

 

• Our goals are not only to teach kids how to hit a tennisball, but to understand the game of tennis  Instruction will include understanding the tennis court, scoring, and etiquette.

 

• We will provide a basic introduction to tennis and provide those interested in going further with access to local tennis pros.

 

 

The clinic is scheduled to begin Saturday September 16th from 9:00-10:30. Clinics and leagues will be conducted on Saturdays and Mondays.  We will be using courts that are primarily used for Byrnes and Dorman Girls Tennis and we must work around their schedule. If a High School match gets rescheduled to a Monday, then Youth Tennis will need to be canceled for that night. Also since Girls Tennis matches occur on various Wednesdays and almost every Tuesday/Thursday, we might have to be flexible with rescheduling our clinics

 

Here are a few additional items:

 

1.  All clinics will be held at Beech Springs Intermediate School (The Byrnes HS tennis courts) or Dorman HSweather permitting.  Unfortunately with hard courts, even a slight rainfall can cancel our play.  The courts get slippery and the safety of players is our priority.  A decision to play will be made with as much advanced notice as possible.  Please be patient.

 

2.  The players should wear athletic shoes, athletic pants/shorts and shirt.  Pants/shorts with pockets are preferred, as tennis balls are stored there during pointsJerseys will be ordered once there is a handle on how many will be attending.  

 

3.  All players are responsible for their own racquet.  If you don't have one already, you can purchase one from Dick's sporting goods. I will always try and bring extra racquets but please be prepared. Please get a racquet that is size and weight appropriate for your child. The following website might be helpful:
