Parker Recreation and the Parker Tennis Company are teaming up to offer a wide range of public youth and adult tennis instruction and programs beginning in April. Parker Tennis owners Barry and Suzette Riddle are excited to once again offer high quality tennis programs to Parker area residents.
The Riddles bring over 50 years combined tennis and coaching experience to the program. Their coaching style exposes players to the fun, friends, and fitness gained from playing tennis. Barry is an assistant coach with the Chaparral High School tennis teams and tennis professional at The Greenwood Athletic Club. Suzette is a former Cherry Creek High School coach and is a teaching pro at Greenwood Athletic Club. Both Barry and Suzette played college tennis as scholarship athletes and are USPTA tennis professionals.
This joint tennis program, serving players age five through adult, will be based from the Chaparral High School tennis courts. Youth clinics begin in April and fees are $42R/$46NR for ages five and six and $58R/$62NR for ages seven to 12. Middle school, high school and adult coed programs begin in May. Youth tennis programs are scheduled around Douglas County’s year round school calendar.
In addition to beginning tennis classes, Parker Tennis offers middle and high school tennis camps. For a full list of tennis classes, camps and special events, please visit the Town’s Web site at http://www.parkeronline.org or the Parker Tennis Web site at http://www.parkertennis.com.
