MANCHESTER, NH – The City Tennis-NH Summer Camp is scheduled this year for July 26-30 at the Derryfield School tennis courts, 2108 River Road. The program has been in operation for close to 20 years. The purpose of the program is to provide opportunities to children and youth of New Hampshire that live in its cities. These children and youth may not have the chance to access the sport of tennis; as such we want to make this opportunity available to the children and youth of New Hampshire to participate in the sport for a lifetime. As this is a core element for participation, careful screening occurs.
The City Tennis-NH Summer Camp has been held at The Derryfield School and in the city of Nashua. Given the popularity of the program, over the years we have served children of ages from 6 to 17.
To conduct this exciting program, the project has teamed up with local organizations and businesses, as well as, national professional tennis organizations and the governing body of tennis.
The tennis instruction has been provided by area high school/college tennis players and tennis professionals that volunteer their time for one week, five days, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The cost for the campers is $5, which has included T-shirt, snacks, racquet, and potentially a trip to the US Open for Arthur Ashe Kids Day.
For more information about City Tennis-NH, please contact Gustavo Moral at 644-3544 x111 or 566-3197 – email@example.com – volunteer opportunities still available.
