Parent / Player 101

Is your child new to tennis?

Are you not sure what is happening on the court?

Sign up for the CCTA’s Parent/Player 101 event!

Who: Middle School/Junior High players and their parent/guardians.

What: We will pair off players to play points/games. A volunteer will stand on court with parents of both players and help players and parents understand rules and court courtesy. While players will be keeping ‘score’ they may only play a few points or games and then we will switch it up so they play someone else and work with a different volunteer. For example- Everyone will move to their left, so winning or losing does NOT matter.

Players will play for a certain amount of time and then we will switch it up. Don’t worry if they only play 4 points or 4 games. We want to make sure that everyone gets a chance to ask questions, but be receptive to correcting their actions on court. **For example… we will ask that the players call the correct score out Before they start their service motion. Volunteers will stop the point and have them replay.

When: Sunday November 7th from 2-3:30

Where: HEB Tennis Center

Cost: Free! But you have to sign up. There are a limited number of spots!

** If the session fills up, please send an email to [email protected] We are looking at adding a few courts or possibly a session directly after the 2pm session. So Let Us Know!

The goal is for everyone to learn something… AND have fun! We will provide pizza and drinks for all participating!

** The system will ask that you set-up a quick, simple (and better yet) FREE USTA Junior account for your child.

**Players need to have basic ability to play and keep score. There will be no stroke (how to hit a forehand/backhand) development offered at this event.
