Bonnie Tasch, President The Oakwood Lady Niners celebrated

A grateful group of students gather around USTA Tennis coach Don Neu and his group of volunteer instructors as another season of free tennis lessons came to a close April 24.

Lou Blas Every Monday and Tuesday evening at

7:30 p.m. from the beginning of October to the end of April, free tennis lessons are given to any Sun Lakes resident at the Cottonwood Courts. Lessons are for both beginners and

those just wanting to improve their game. Lessons last an hour and a half. Scoring, ground strokes, volleying, serving, footwork, doubles strategies,

format for tie breakers, tennis rules and

court etiquette are covered over the six- month span of free lessons. Over the years many people who have

never played tennis have been introduced to the sport through this fun gathering. Thank you to instructors Don Neu,

Jack Sanders, Pierre Moresi, Bob Pivec, Ollie Johnson, Harvey Trachtenberg, Rob Campbell and Rae and Bob Lewis for giving up your time and expertise.
