O’FALLON – The O’Fallon Middle School Tennis Program will take place beginning March 14 and is open to local boys and girls in the sixth, seventh and eight grade.
There will be a total of eight sessions that take place on Thursday’s from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m at the OTHS tennis courts. Sessions will take place on: March 8, March 21, March 28, April 4, April 25, May 2, May 9 and May 16.
According to the OTHS Tennis Team head coach Erin Thoman, this will be the seventh year for the middle school tennis program.
“The middle school tennis program is for all levels,” Thoman said. “It allows middle schoolers to have a chance to see how they like tennis. For some, they decide they want to continue on and play competitively in high school. For others, it is recreational.”
Current OTHS tennis players will serve as instructors for the program. Participants in the program will receive a t-shirt.
A $50 fee covers all eight sessions of the program. Checks can be made payable to Erin Thoman (OTHS Tennis) at 600 S. Smiley St. O’Fallon, IL 62269.
Participants in the program are responsible for their own transportation to and from the tennis courts.
