Big News: Free Tennis for Kids, Starting Saturday, September 15th

"Just got word that we'll be providing a free tennis program for the kids in our community this Fall, Joyce Short, NYJTL Site Director, told The Daily today. "This is a first! We'll begin this weekend."

NYJTL previously treated Roosevelt Island kids to free programs in Winter, Spring and Summer. Now, thanks to the generosity City Council Member Ben Kallos and the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation, the fourth season has been added.

Kids are invited to show up at the Octagon Tennis Courts according to where they best fit in to this schedule:

2:00 - Advanced Skills Training (Qualifiers only)
3:00 - All 5,6, and 7 year olds and 8 year old beginners
4:00 - General play for 7 year olds and older

Short advises that qualifiers for Advanced Training at 2:00 can also play matches and games from 3:00 to 5:00.
