      WALDEN GLEN TENNIS PROGRAM     

We are delighted to welcome back tennis pro Coach Claudia Rohaly & asst. coach Vincent Oliver for the 2018 summer tennis program for children ages 5-18.  In addition, WG will again host a summer juniors' team.  The juniors’ team, of girls and boys ages 11-18, will participate in the No. Va. Tennis League (NVTL).  Beginner players will register for tennis lessons only; however, as their skills advance they can be considered for the team (based on coaches’ evaluations of skill and maturity) & intrasquad scrimmages for 10&unders.
