The Town of Oyster Bay has announced the return of Youth Tennis Programs for Summer 2022 and that the Town is now hiring Summer Tennis Assistants. Held at Syosset-Woodbury Community Park and Ellsworth Allen Park in Farmingdale beginning on Tuesday, July 5th, the program will feature 6-week sessions for boys and girls ages 5-8.
“Our youth tennis clinic has quickly become a very popular recreational and instructional program. This program is a great opportunity for children with no prior tennis experience to learn the fundamentals of tennis directly from some of the area’s finest coaches,” Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson said. “I encourage those interested to register, and take advantage of this opportunity to expose your children to a new sport, and potentially discover a new passion!”
The Summer 2022 Youth Tennis Program is designed to teach kids the fundamentals of tennis in a structured setting, as well as help improve individual skills. No prior experience is necessary, but participants must bring their own rackets (all other equipment will be provided).
