Youths from age 5 high school age can learn to play tennis or improve their game at no charge at Vance Harmon Park on Saturdays from 9 to11 a.m. weekly. Retired tennis pro Dennis Bruckel has taught tennis for 25 years at public and private courts in Poinciana and Kissimmee.

Younger kids will work on tennis stroke production and mechanics while older kids enjoy singles and doubles fun competition. A ball-throwing machine is used weekly to provide lots of hits for everyone.

Kids attending only need appropriate clothing and court shoes. Racquets and balls will be provided. All sessions are at the tennis and pickleball courts at Vance Harmon Park in Poinciana. No reservations are needed.
