Coming off the heels of the women’s tennis team’s CSAC championship win, Cairn University launched the Cairn Tennis Academy (CTA) and an accompanying annual court membership earlier this month.
The Cairn Tennis Academy, led by University coaches Kevin Jackson and Gregg Fanus, offers summer camps, private and group lessons, and high school tennis coach training.
Children and teens can participate in the tennis camp and group lessons. CTA’s specialized, half-day camp will focus on developing basic and advanced tennis skills for 8–17 year olds. There are four camp weeks this summer; the next camp week is July 8–12. Seasonally offered in the fall and spring, junior group lesson programs are also offered at convenient after-school/homeschool time slots for children ages 4–17.
Those of all ages and skill levels are invited to schedule private lessons with Cairn’s tennis coaching staff or members of the women’s tennis team. One-day training sessions for local high school coaches will also be offered twice a year.
With increased usage of the newly renovated courts from the women’s tennis team, the men’s tennis team—set to begin play this fall, and the CTA activities, an annual membership fee has been instituted to protect, preserve, and maintain the courts. Community members looking to engage in freetime play on one of the University’s six, lighted courts will be able to do so around the CTA and team schedules for an all-inclusive annual fee.
