ZEPHYR COVE — Tennis is a sport that can be a life-long activity once the fundamentals are learned. Through a series of summer programs, Zephyr Cove Tennis Club hopes to instill a love of tennis in youngsters so they will play years from now.

Deanne Larsell, who has been teaching tennis for 35 years, will lead the clinics available for kids in first through eighth grade. Larsell puts the “fun” in fundamentals and has the expertise to develop abilities of more advanced players so they are comfortable on the court without a coach.

Classes are limited to eight students, so instruction will be individualized. The lessons are broken up into four-session classes with the schedule as follows:

Beginners, grades 1-3: June 6, 8, 13, 15 — 3:20-4:20 p.m.; June 7, 9, 14, 16 — 1-2 p.m.; July 12, 13, 19, 20 — 3-4 p.m.; Aug. 2, 3, 9, 10 — 3-4 p.m.;

Beginners, grades 4-8: June 6, 8, 13, 15 — 1-2 p.m.; June 7, 9, 14, 16 — 3:20-4:20 p.m.; July 12, 13, 19, 20 — 4-5 p.m.; Aug. 2, 3, 9, 10 — 4-5 p.m.;

Advanced beginners, grades 1-3: June 6, 8, 13, 15 — 4:20-5:20 p.m.; June 7, 9, 14, 16 — 2-3 p.m.; July 12, 13, 19, 20 — 1-2 p.m.; Aug. 2, 3, 9, 10 — 1-2 p.m.;

Advanced beginners, grades 4-8: June 6, 8, 13, 15 — 2-3 p.m.; June 7, 9, 14, 16 — 4:20-5:20 p.m.; July 12, 13, 19, 20 — 2-3 p.m.; Aug. 2, 3, 9, 10 — 2-3 p.m.;

Each four-session class costs $45; for information on scholarships, email carolyn@zctennis.com. All participants must pre-register online at http://www.zctennis.com/kids-registration — Larsell may be reached at 503-679-2502.
