Waxahachie High School will be the site of a free tennis camp scheduled 9 a.m. to noon, June 23-25 for boys and girls who attend Waxahachie ISD schools and will be ages 6-14 at the time of the summer event.
Perry Nutt, Indians tennis coach, said the camp is an opportunity for youth to learn the fundamentals of a sport they may have an interest in participating in but have not been given the chance to do so.
“This will give kids an opportunity to see if they like the sport; this is probably the first time that some of these kids have ever played tennis so we want to make it fun for them,” Nutt said. “At the same time, we are building the program.”
He also adds that kids who don’t bring a racquet will not be turned away.
There will be members of the Waxahachie varsity team assisting in the camp. Nutt said there would be liquids and tennis balls available to participants. Depending on the turnout, matches between campers could also be played. He is trying to coordinate with a local sponsor about providing a T-shirt to campers.
This camp would not interfere with other summer camps scheduled to be held at the high school.
