Play Tennis Midwest - Free Tennis Classes

A FREE and FUN way to try tennis
May 13-15, 2022

 

Tennis is the perfect sport to pick up and start playing—It's safe, easy to learn AND good for you. And, that's why we're hosting FREE tennis events around the Midwest for kids and adults to go out and try tennis.

 

Whether it’s your first time on the court or you’re returning to the game, we welcome you to come out and give it a shot. The best part: There's no cost to play. Even better: If you don't have a racquet, one will be provided to you onsite!

 

Let's Tennis!
