February 2015

It's February and we're still playing tennis - indoors!  We met over 20 new families at our January Winter Play Days.  

Bring your favorite 6-12 year old and join us for our February Play Days at three YMCAs across the county. Middle and High School players have one more clinic on the WR YMCA indoor courts February 7 with Bitrus Istafanus; and experienced youth tennis players from across the Triad area return to Mayodan for the second Rockingham County sanctioned USTA junior tournament sponsored by BB&T.
