Middle school league starting

A new tennis league for middle school players is starting soon, sponsored by the Frankfort Tennis Association and the Frankfort Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites Department.
Any student in the fifth, sixth, seventh or eighth grade who plays or is interested in learning tennis as a fun or competitive sport is invited to come out March 22 at the Kentucky State University tennis courts.
“We’ve put a lot of emphasis on getting our littlest players on court with the QuickStart program for ages 6 to 10, and a lot on our high school players, too. Now, it’s time to focus on the group in the middle,” said Parks Junior Tennis Coordinator Sonya Harward.
The Junior Team Tennis program was started by the United States Tennis Association to bring in new players and introduce the game to kids age 11-14.
The program teaches the skills and rules of tennis, self-confidence and sportsmanship, as well as the love of an active, healthy lifestyle.
Sessions are held on Saturday mornings from 9-10:30 through May 10. A $55 fee includes, coaching, match play, USTA junior membership and a team jersey.
