Islamic School of Irving has used this opportunity to provide community children with the option to take up tennis as a lifetime hobby and sport.

Summer Tennis Camp, 2011

Summer Tennis Fun!

June, 2011 - ISI piloted its first ever Summer Tennis Camp. Well over forty children enrolled in the camp, ranging in ages from five to twelve, all beginners.
Patterned after the USTA's QuickStart format, the tennis camp aimed to teach tennis in a fun format that stressed more on teaching a love for the game and for sports in general.
Twice a week, for six weeks, children and their USTA-trained coaches played, joked, experimented, and most of all, had loads of FUN on their new tennis adventure together.  Gradually, through all the fun and games, children  acquired the basic skills of stroke progression and foot-work, and of course, a love for the game.

Alhamdulillah!
