Lee College tennis program hosting summer camps for kids, tournament for adults

BAYTOWN, TX — The Lee College tennis program is offering activities this summer for community members of all ages: half-day and full-day camps for youths 6-14 years old, and a one-day tournament for adults to compete against each other.

Tennis summer camps for kids will begin Monday, June 6, at the Lee College courts on Market Street and continue weekly through August. Parents can select from a half-day option that runs from 8:30 a.m.-noon, or a full-day option that runs from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., and includes lunch. Students will be divided into groups according to their age and skill level, with the goal of improving their overall athletic ability and sharpening their fundamentals to make them more knowledgeable and successful tennis players.

The adult tennis tournament will be held Saturday, June 11, at the Lee College courts. Participants can compete in singles and doubles play, with an open event for players 18 and older, and an event reserved for those 45 and older. There will also be an opportunity for parents to play doubles with their children.

“Tennis is a lifelong sport that you can play at any age,” said Rob Coles, the tennis professional for Lee College and coordinator of the summer camps and adult tennis tournament. “It doesn’t take a whole team, just a few friends who want to get out on the court.”

Limited spaces are available for the kids summer camps and adult tennis tournament. Registration deadlines are approaching fast. To sign up or get more information about costs and other program details, contact Coles at 281.425.6843 or rcoles@lee.edu.
