Fun, Friends And Fitness Program Draws New Players To The Game

March 1, 2005 09:34 AM

Fun Friends and Fitness is a program initiated by the Northwest Louisiana Community Tennis Association. The program provides instruction and play for beginner/intermediate adults in the Shreveport, LA area. Whether participants have never picked up a racquet or have not played in years, the program is designed to welcome players to the game.

Each Saturday the program rotates to a new facility in the city and participants have an opportunity to take a lesson from a number of different Shreveport pros. Area tennis pros and volunteers have been the major contributors for making the program a success. The first Saturday of the season 57 players and 10 volunteers from the local area participated in the event. The program provides a fun atmosphere for learning the game and introduces players to team and league tennis.

Fun, Friends, and Fitness runs for 6 weeks on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. until noon and is a one time fee of $30/person. For more information contact Cal Schexnider, Community Coordinator at (318) 865-1244 or email at
