ZEPHYR COVE — Youngsters learning to love the game of tennis took over the courts at Zephyr Cove Tennis Club for two days last weekend. ZCTC teaching pro Rob Wheatley led the annual Kids Clinic last Saturday and Sunday with the help of a dozen volunteers from the club.

“Exposing more kids to tennis is a priority for the Foundation,” said Carolyn Wright, president of the ZCTC Foundation. “This free clinic, along with other clinics being offered at the Club, allows kids to learn the sport in a fun environment, hopefully so they will continue to play the rest of their lives. We especially appreciate the volunteers for supporting these programs.”

The free event was co-sponsored by Douglas County Parks and Recreation Department and the nonprofit Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation. Several club members provided the pizza lunch, and the Northern California chapter of the United States Tennis Association gave away goodies to each participant.

Zephyr Cove Tennis Club has six courts nestled in the woods overlooking Lake Tahoe that are open to the public. The club offers lessons for all ages, membership, social mixers and open play — it is located on Warrior Way off Highway 50 in Zephyr Cove. For more info, visit http://www.zctennis.com.
