Information for Parents and Players

ALL Sixth Graders are encouraged to join this club sport. The sessions are designed to introduce beginning players to the basic ground strokes and sportsmanship in tennis.

Generic Parent Permission Form (Please insert your child’s school in the three blank spaces. Also note your child’s T-shirt size.) Paper, school-specific versions of this form will be available at each school about two weeks before the tennis program begins and also from coaches. The electronic form can be printed and returned to your child’s adult coach, or an electronic version sent to Wes Dunnick. A parent permission form, either electronic or paper, MUST be returned for every sixth grader. This form is all you need to register for the program.

Sessions will be 3:20-4:35pm on the tennis courts at each school, except for Slauson, which will be held at West Park Tennis courts. In case of rain or other bad weather, sessions will be canceled.

The sessions are FREE to sixth graders. In addition, the Ann Arbor Area Community Tennis Association provides tennis balls and rackets. Players can use their own rackets. Players must wear a mask (if unvaccinated) and sturdy shoes suitable for a tennis court and bring a water bottle. 

Ralleyball Tournament is held at the University of Michigan Varsity Tennis Center (2250 S State St), in the last week of the program. Play begins about 4:30pm. Sixth graders are transported from their school to the Varsity Tennis Center by AAPS buses. Family and friends are encouraged to attend. Parents must pick up their children or arrange transportation for them at 6:00pm, after the tournament.
