Come and join International Tennis Hall of Fame award winner Coach, Kirstie Marx, for spring tennis clinics. Kirstie can also tailor private lessons to your needs, groups or individual. The clinics will be held at Kildaire Farms Racket and Swim Club in Cary, just around the corner from Trader Joe's. Meet other families while learning to play the wonderful game of tennis.
During the clinics, Kirstie and her assistant coaches will cover all the strokes of tennis, fun drills, gameplay, scoring, and tennis etiquette. Time on the court will be welcoming, fun, hard work yet very rewarding.
