NYJTL on Monday began its annual summer program offering free tennis to youngsters ages 6 to 18 at various locations throughout the New York City. Trained coaches will provide a comprehensive schedule of instruction, practice and play for all levels.

The summer program, which runs through Friday, August 22nd, includes special trips, tournaments, contests and educational guidance programs. Tennis activities include group instruction, practice and USTA Junior Team Tennis match play. Each site provides loaner tennis racquets and balls.

Parents must register their children at the NYJTL Community Tennis Center that they select. All children are welcome at all locations and local community children's groups are also encouraged to attend.
