The first is a four-week ses- sion on Saturday afternoons for $50, starting April 30 and running through May 21. The second clinic starts on Tuesday, May 24th and runs for six sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-5 pm. The cost of this clinic is $72.

Watson has been instru- mental in the introduction of rally ball and Quick Start tennis on the local level.
