Junior tennis this summer at Fairfield Glade Racquet Club

CROSSVILLE — Fairfield Glade Racquet Club is hosting a variety of programs for kids of all ages to introduce them to the sport you can play for a lifetime — tennis.

There are four weeks of junior camps for ages 5-17 years old. These camps run Monday-Wednesday and Friday. Ages 5-10 are from 10-11 a.m. and cost $45 and ages 11-17 are from 12:30-2 p.m. and cost is $60.

Camp weeks are June 17-21, June 24-28, July 8-12 and July 15-19.

In addition to the camps, FGRC will also be starting Junior Team Tennis (JTT) beginning June 20 and will run for five weeks. JTT is a program that gets kids playing matches right away and puts players on a team so they can play with their friends or make new friends. JTT is open to players of all levels ages 11-17 years old. JTT will run two days a week Thursday from 10 a.m.-noon and Saturdays from 1-3 p.m. Each JTT class will have one hour of instruction followed by an hour of match play. There is a minimum of six players needed to run JTT. Cost for the five weeks is $100. All JTT players will receive a T-shirt. 

The last program is Quickstart Tennis also beginning June 20 and will run for five weeks. This is a program that introduces tennis to players ages 10 and under. Quickstart puts players on an appropriate court for their age and also utilizes low compression balls and smaller racquets. This is to help keep the ball in the player’s strike zone, thus allowing more opportunities to hit the ball properly.  In addition to learning tennis, players will develop motor skills that will help them in all sports. Quickstart will run Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 p.m. and Saturdays 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. There is a minimum of four players needed to hold Quickstart. Cost is $50. All Quickstart participants will receive a T-shirt.

To sign up for any of the programs or for more information stop by the Fairfield Glade Racquet Club or call William Taylor at 931-707-2470 or email wtaylor@fairfieldglade.cc.

  • County residents urged to vote

    Cumberland County has around 39,000 registered voters, as well as a strong reputation for voter participation.  However, as of press time on Tuesday, only 4,300 residents had taken advantage of early voting for the Aug. 7 primary and general elections. Local officials are predicting less than 50 percent of registered voters will cast their vote in the 14 days of early voting, plus election day. Only 23 percent of registered county voters participated in the May elections.

  • Naiad Kuhlman.jpg Senior olympian on the run for good health

    No one can get away with telling Naiad Kuhlman of Crossville that age is a barrier to exercise. The avid runner, personal trainer and instructor at Cumberland Medical Center’s Wellness Complex at Fairfield Glade won’t buy the excuse.

  • Enjoying nature.jpg Get your mink coat on the road

    It is interesting what animals you see crossing the roads sometimes. When animals cross roads, you can get a look at them, that wouldn't be possible if they stayed inside the cover of trees or grass. Sometimes, it is just a fleeting glance and you aren't sure what you saw. When you go into the woods looking for animals, they usually hide or leave the area before you even know they are around. But, roads are wide open with no cover. Also, most mammals are nocturnal, so they are out when we aren't. Anytime that I am on a two-lane road at night, I am always watching intently for wildlife in the headlights.

  • Abacus Column: Tennessee the third most corrupt state in the U.S.?

    According to a recent article in Time magazine, Tennessee is ranked third among U.S. States in political corruption. I am not sure how they measure such crime in order to make such a charge. Does some purveyor of statistics identify the number of elected officials proved guilty in a court of law; or merely charged with corruption?
