Friends of Cheltenham Community Tennis’ After School Tennis Programs are going strong and have expanded to three more of our district schools in 2018.
Thanks to Middle States USTA (United States Tennis Association), and their support by approving our grants for new indoor equipment, training of our PE staff, and replenishment of equipment, we have been able to bring the After-School programs to our district.
Also, with the support of our administration and principals, we are able to partner with our schools to facilitate the ASP program.
Starting at the Elkins Park School in 2016-17 with 2 sessions, now in 2017-18 we have expanded into 3 more of our schools, Wyncote, Glenside and Cheltenham Elementary Schools.
Serving over 80 students this year, we only wish we had more facilities to serve all the students on the wait list.
Our students are being instructed by an experienced, well trained staff of tennis coaches, assisted by a faculty member of each school and high school volunteers.
The participants learn the fundamental strokes, scoring, sportsmanship and match play skills. The clinics incorporate fun games while teaching and enforcing tennis skills.
It is our hope to inspire a passion for tennis—- the sport we love!
We feel strongly that we are succeeding!
Please look for our 2018-19 ASP registration information on our website and Facebook page in mid-August, and in the schools in September.
