Sheppard leading youth tennis camps
Fairfield High School head tennis coach Bill Sheppard will be leading a boys summer tennis camp for three weeks starting Monday at the Fairfield Middle School courts.
A camp for students entering kindergarten through fifth grade will run from 9-9:50 a.m. June 10-28. A second camp, for children going into grades 6-8, will immediately follow each day at 10-10:50 a.m.
Both camps cost $20 per week.
Sheppard, who has more than 30 years of tennis instruction, will lead activities including games, drills and individual skills development. The camp will place an emphasis on fundamental skills in a relaxed, no pressure environment.
Tennis balls will be provided, as will junior size tennis rackets to elementary-age students who need them.
