The Manchester Parks, Recreation, and Cemeteries Division is growing their youth tennis program by joining Net Generation. Led by an approved Net Generation coach, the program will focus on developing the skills to serve, rally, and score - so it is perfect for first time tennis players. Once the skills are there, the kids will be playing fun organized team matches.
This program will use modified tennis balls and court sizes so players can learn and play the game without the stress of leaving their comfort zone.
All players receive a USTA Junior Team Tennis t-shirt and an age appropriate racquet and ball.
Every Tuesday from 7/17 to 8/21
Grades 1-2 4:30 to 5:30
Grades 3-5 5:30 to 6:30
Grades 6-8 6:30 to 7:30
All lessons take place at the Manchester High School West Tennis Courts
$60 for all 6 weeks.

The state of New Hampshire recently confirmed that the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an invasive insect from Asia that has killed millions of ash trees nationwide, has been found in Manchester, joining a growing list of New Hampshire towns. In an effort to slow the spread of this insect, the state has issued a quarantine on the movement of all ash materials, as well as all hardwood firewood and wood chips, coming out of and through Hillsborough, Rockingham, Belknap, and Merrimack counties. The Merrimack county quarantine has been in effect since 2013.
Please visit http://nhbugs.org/emerald-ash-borer for specific quarantine details. This website also contains information concerning many aspects of EAB, including how to identify it and what options you have to protect your ash trees..
