PATH offers free tennis camp for youth starting June 19
Each year, Partners Aligned Toward Health, ot PATH, formerly Graham Children’s Health Services, organizes the Toe River Racqueteers Tennis Camp – a free opportunity for local youth in both Mitchell and Yancey counties to learn tennis from a professional. The program was developed and is supervised by USPTA Master Professional and Founder of Tennis Insights Michael Baldwin Sr.
PATH’s “need a racquet, get a racquet” program assures every player can have a racquet to take home. Specialized equipment is provided for the youngest players, including smaller and lighter rackets, a smaller court size, and slower and lower-bouncing balls that help elevate the level of fun and success.
This year in Mitchell county, the camp will be June 19-20 at the tennis courts at Brad Ragan Park.
Email Terri Leiser at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 828-682-7899 to register. Once registered for the camp, just bring water, sunscreen already applied, tennis shoes, a hat, if needed, and arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start times.
Camp times are 9-10 a.m. for ages 5-9 and 10:15-11:45 a.m. for ages 10 and up.
Since 1997, PATH has implemented initiatives to improve the health of children and families in Mitchell and Yancey counties.
