Tennis Anyone?

The Greater Pottstown Tennis Association will host a free "Play Day" for children ages 10 and younger on Sunday, June 10 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Hill School tennis courts off Beech Street. 

According to the U.S. Tennis Association web site, "A 2-3 hour Play Day allows kids to have multiple matches with and against a variety of players."

Play Days are designed for various levels of players to participate in a fun, low pressure, yet competitive setting.
