The Marshall Junior Tennis program will begin its summer season on May 29, meeting Mondays through Thursdays until June 27.

Junior tennis is open to anyone from the age of 8 years through high school with previous tennis experience. Registration will be held the first day of class, with the fee $60 per member.

The classes will be held from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. for ages 8 to 10, 9:30-10:45 a.m. from 11- and 12-year-olds and 10:45 a.m. to 12 noon for the 13-14 group -- all at the Indian Foothills Park courts.
