Waukon Park & Recreation to host Youth Tennis Program

Waukon Park & Recreation will be offering a tennis program again this summer, teaming up with instructors Aidan Hunter and Brendan Hunter to provide this opportunity. The program is for girls and boys ages seven to 17. The focus will be to help the kids gain a better understanding of the sport along with learning basic tennis technique and form.

The classes will be divided by age groups as follows:
• 7 & 8 year olds (5:00-5:50 p.m.)
• 9 & 10 year olds (6:00-6:50 p.m.)
• 11-17 year olds (7:00-7:50 p.m.)

The tennis program will be held Monday and Tuesday evenings (at the times listed above) at the Waukon Tennis Courts (across from the Waukon Wellness Center) starting July 25, and will run for three weeks. Program dates are July 25, July 26, August 1, August 2, August 8 and August 9. In the event of rain, a make-up date will be determined at that time.

The cost of the program is $25. All tennis equipment will be provided if those participating do not have their own. This program will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, and is only taking up to eight kids for each age group. Registration forms are available on the Waukon Park & Recreation website at https://www.cityofwaukon.com/park-rec-program, in the lobby of the Waukon Wellness Center, or on the Waukon Park & Recreation Facebook page. NOTE: Registration forms must be returned in person to the Wellness Center in order to track sign-up. No mail-ins will be accepted.
