Pecos kids going to the net

Sports Writer

Pecos Eagles' tennis coach Bernadette Ornelas said this year's summer tennis program is trying to incorporate some of the events used in this spring's U.S. Tennis Association's two events held at the Pecos High School courts.

"Basically, we're doing different things," with the younger tennis players, Ornelas said. "We're incorporating the USTA 1-2-3 tennis to give us a little format to follow."

The program involves more games and skill drills, such as dribbling tennis balls or carrying several balls at a time on a racquet. "We want to make tennis fun rather than `kill and drill'," Ornelas said.

The weekday morning classes are divided by age groups, with about 55 boys and girls signed up. She said classes for the youngest players are the first held each day, and "In the kindergarten through third grade we divide them up into two or three groups," for instructions.

The junior high and high school players practice later in the day, and a tennis event has been scheduled for the Pecos High School tennis courts the weekend of the Fiesta Night in Old Pecos and the Pecos Cantaloupe Festival, on June 26-27.
