Palm Coast – May is National Tennis Month and the City of Palm Coast is celebrating with a series of free clinics for players ages 11 and up of all skill levels.

From the mid-1980s to today, the sport of tennis has played a critical role in the development and the history of Palm Coast, from the Players Club (1986-2006), which drew top 10 national talent like Andre Agassi, Michael Chang, Jim Courier, Jimmy Connors and Monica Seles, to the current Palm Coast Tennis Center, which draws international talent to the facility annually, Palm Coast has maintained a reputation for world-class tennis facilities that are favorites to residents and visitors alike. The city also has one of its own gracing the ATP rankings these days – former Palm Coast resident Reilly Opelka, who reached as high as 17th in the world just last year.

Whether you’re brand new to the sport, or a skilled player looking to brush up your skills, the free clinics offered for the National Tennis Month celebration are a great way to get out on the clay courts for some recreational fun in the sun.

“We have such a great tennis community here in Palm Coast and these clinics are a terrific way to celebrate National Tennis Month by bringing everyone together to celebrate the sport and showcase the great facilities we have here at the tennis center,” said Palm Coast Parks and Recreation Director James Hirst. “From beginners looking to gage their interest in the sport, to seasoned players looking for some pointers and some friendly-competitive play, these clinics will have a little bit of something for everyone.”

The National Tennis Month free clinics will take place at the Palm Coast Tennis Center on Saturday, May 20 and Saturday, May 27 from 12pm-2pm. Each day will feature two, 1-hour sessions. Participants are encouraged to register in advance on the event registration page. The Palm Coast Tennis Center is located at 1290 Belle Terre Parkway in Palm Coast.
