Tennis drills at Kenwood Park


The Fayette County Parks and Recreation Department is offering summer tennis drills for ages 15 and older at the Kenwood Park tennis courts.

The drills are designed to help you improve your technique for the following shots that you will be encountering in competitive tennis: forehands, backhands, volleys, half-volleys, overheads, and serves. Emphasis will be placed on proper technique including back-swing, footwork, racket face control, and follow through, plus improving your court positioning. We will also focus on avoiding injuries and building stamina.

All drills will include games and competition to put your new strokes to the test. Drills led by Mike Wilson, a P.T.R. Certified Instructor and an A.C.E. Certified Personal Trainer.

There are three 4-week sessions scheduled, all on Saturdays from 5-6 p.m. The first session is June 6-27; the second session is July 11-Aug. 1; and the third session is Aug. 8-29.

Cost is $40 per resident and $60 per non-resident.
