                                                 Tennis For The Health Of It

Welcome to the Wausau youth tennis program. We offer three levels of instruction for four different age groups. There are morning or afternoon camps, each packed with lots of time for learning and practicing new skills, and opportunities for supervised game-playing. Campers must bring a tennis racquet, water bottle and daily snack. A light jacket or sweater is recommended for morning camps. Rainy days will be spent at the Oak Island Park Shelter, where students will continue their instruction using Wii tennis as well as other appropriate games and activities.
