Tennis Anyone?
Welcome to the sixth year of St. Charles Cardinals tennis club!  This club is open to boys and girls from 5th through 8th grade. Players of all levels and abilities are welcome. Even if you have never played before, this is a great opportunity to learn the fundamentals of a sport of a lifetime!
 
ENROLLMENT IS LIMITED TO FIRST 25 KIDS!

The entire season will last approximately 6 weeks (April 14th thru May 20th). Practices will be held on Fridays from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm at the Kreager Park tennis courts. Matches will be played either at Kreager park, Sweeney Park or other school tennis courts. Most matches take about 2 hours and will be played on week nights or Saturday mornings.  We will be playing about 5-6 middle schools. Please see the practice and match calendar for more schedule details.  The calendar will be updated as I schedule more tennis matches.
