“There has never been a better time to get into tennis. New ‘quickstart’ tennis lessons get you playing from the first day,” according to Jose Mieres, manager of the Citiparks Tennis Program. "Recent renovations at the indoor courts include the first addition of 'blended lines' in Pittsburgh area tennis courts, to divide a full sized court into several much smaller courts more appropriate for younger children beginner to advanced. For two years now our coaches have been teaching junior clinics closely following the USTA and PTR '10&Under' and ITF 'Play and Stay' initiatives, and these new 'blended lines' are a reality thanks to the outstanding response we've received from parents and especially children playing in our clinics and summer camp."
Citiparks Mellon Park Tennis Center is located at 6601 Fifth Avenue in Shadyside.
The complete clinics schedule offers adult clinics on Saturdays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; Junior clinics take place on Saturdays and after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Tennis clinic cost for juniors is $10; adults $12 - $15.
