More staff and volunteers than ever greeted the kids on the opening day of summer tennis camp at Rodney Street. Some 40 kids from ages 6 to 16 will learn tennis fundamentals, fine tune their game, and enjoy lots of match play at the Rodney Street Tennis & Tutoring Association’s 8-week summer program in WIlmington. This year some high school volunteers took part in special Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) training, which included helpful advice about how to motivate kids, offer positive criticism, and techniques to keep the instruction lively and fun. “They told us ‘no lines and no laps’,” said volunteer James Fleming. “Kids — especially the younger ones — don’t like standing in line to wait for a feed, and they don’t enjoy running laps around the courts,” he said. Instead, volunteers will offer a variety of activities, in addition to tennis, that will involve lots of movement and coordination. In the afternoon campers enjoy field trips, guest speakers and enrichment activities at the classroom facility at First & Central Church in downtown Wilmington.
