Little Aces tennis program at Guildford

A chance for children to learn a new sport

A new community tennis program aimed at children 12-and-under is set to take centre court in Surrey later this month.

The Little Aces program officially launches at an event tomorrow (Saturday)  from 1-3 p.m. at Guildford Town Centre, and is designed to introduce tennis to children – both able-bodied and in wheelchairs – at an early age.

The program is run in partnership with Tennis Canada, Tennis BC, the City of Surrey and Surrey School District as well as local tennis clubs.

In the fall, the club will work with the school district to include tennis into the physical education curriculum.

The June 11 launch will see mini courts set up at the mall, with plenty of games, activities and lessons planned.

For more information on the program, visit www.tennisbc.org and find the Little Aces link under the Community tab.
