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.
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 moved indoors, but may 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 sturdy shoes suitable for a tennis court and bring a water bottle.
A Ralleyball Tournament will be 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.
