Wednesday, July 22, 2009

The July session of youth tennis for ages 11-13 begins today at 11 a.m. at the Wyndham Resorts tennis facility, and the initial session for ages 7-10 begins tomorrow at 11 a.m. at the same location.

Subsequent sessions for ages 7-10 will be held Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon, and sessions for ages 11-13 will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m.-noon, through the end of the month.

Participants are reminded they must have a tennis racquet and non-marking athletic or tennis shoes. Running shoes can cause injuries, as they are not designed for lateral movement.

Sand volleyball

For the third consecutive year, adult sand volleyball will be offered by the recreation department at the South Pagosa Park sand volleyball courts.

This year, there will be no fees for registration as games will be informal and played without a referee. However, the courts will be reserved for play and a schedule and game balls will be provided. The tentative plan is for games to be played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Registrations are available at the Town of Pagosa Springs Recreation office and will be accepted until Friday, July 3, with play scheduled to begin the following week and continuing for approximately six weeks.

Contact Andy Rice at 264-4151, Ext. 231 for more information.
