Charlotte County to Host "Get Out and Play" Masters Tennis

USTA-Masters-Tennis-No-Shield_co_webCharlotte County will begin its annual "Get Out and Play" series of free tennis clinics, which will include the Masters Tennis format, starting on Nov. 8.

The clinics are sponsored by the Cultural Guild of the Greater Cape Haze Peninsula, and held at the public Rotonda Community Park.

"Over the past two years our annual Saturday clinics have been given by pro Pete Zeeh," says organizer Arthur "Dick" Richards. "The clinics are structured for those new to the game to those experienced. Participants ages vary, 18 and up. All aspects of tennis will be covered in readiness for Masters Tennis and regulation tennis, including those for participants from the deaf and hard-of-hearing and wheelchair communities."

Masters Tennis is the new 60-foot short-court option played within a full-size 78-foot tennis court for a wide array of players -- veterans looking to get back in the game after injuries, players who can no longer cover a full court, or adults newer to the game looking for a fun challenge.

"We are recruiting players for Masters Tennis regular play starting  in January," says West County Recreation Coordinator Joan Hawkins. "Besides the regular weekly Masters Tennis play, we're hoping to start a Masters Tennis league as well."
