TENNIS

Sport Overview

WYSI Tennis is aimed at teaching the fundamentals of tennis in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. There is no experience necessary to play, only a willingness to learn, listen, and have fun! Registration for tennis is open April 1 – May 15 of the current season.

Note: Enrollment numbers are limited. Once the enrollment numbers have been met, enrollment will close and all others will be placed on a wait list. Unfortunately our numbers must be capped due to limited court space. We encourage players to enroll early!
