Summer tennis began on Wednesday for Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD students
after sign-ups were held the previous day, but tennis coach Bernadette Ornelas
said she's still accepting boys and girls for the summer program, which will
run in two sessions between now and June 22.
"Right now we don't have that many signed up," she said Wednesday. "Some
of them may still be on vacation after school was over, but they can come
and register on the first day they play."
The tennis program is open to boys and girls between kindergarten and
high school, with a fee of $5 for one child, $7 for two and $10 for three
or more children.
"We go over basic tennis skills and try to encourage the kids to play
throughout the year," Ornelas said. The classes run weekday mornings, but
she added, "We also want more of them to come out here and play at night."
Tennis is one of three Pecos-Barstow-Toyah summer recreation programs
that began this week. Golf and weightlifting also are underway, while the
summer track, swimming and volleyball starting up next week. The P-B-T summer
basketball program will begin on June 11.
Registration fees for those programs are the same as for the summer tennis
program, with the exception of the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program.
