Do you know all the rules for playing tennis?

We will be holding a class on Tues Aug 29 at 7:00-8:30pm  Redeemer Lutheran Church: 468 Grand Ave Redwood City.(parking on Hudson) .  We will be reviewing the Friend at Court Rule Book for 2017 and the LLAR.  We will discuss those common issues that tend to pop up during a match for which we can’t seem to find the correct answer.  In addition, we will review the Grievance filing process and how it works.

Ultimately, we want to have matches that are fun and competitive.  We will be providing light food and refreshments.  We guarantee you will learn something and make tennis more FUN.  Bring your questions and see if you can stump the instructor!   Free event, so please click on this link to register.
