Tennis Clinics at Kanab tennis courts
All ages and all levels of play are invited to join in the free Fall Break Tennis Clinics on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 24 and 25. Pro instructors Laurie Lambert and Garrett Snyder will be visiting Kane County to provide public clinics and visit local schools to teach Physical Education classes.
Lambert is the Executive Director of the Utah Tennis Association (UTA) and is a terrific supporter of the tennis program throughout Kane County. UTA has funded grant requests each year that provide; free or low cost equipment, training aids, and balls. This year with Lambert’s assistance, two local youth were awarded full scholarships to the highly regarded BYU summer tennis clinic. She has become a regular visitor to Kanab both on the tennis courts and at Best Friends.
Snyder will be making his first visit to Kanab. He is the Utah Tennis Service Rep from the U.S. Tennis Association Intermountain District, Denver Colo. With Snyder’s assistance Kane Community Tennis has qualified to be a “Net Generation Program” provider. This program is a nationwide effort to: bring youth tennis to all corners of the nation, provide resources to local programs, and connect kids with pro tennis players as they live lives as professional athletes.
Both Kanab Recreation Department and Kane Community Tennis invite all to come out to the Kanab tennis courts and enjoy the events. The clinics are a good learning experience, as well as a lot of fun!
