Natchitoches youth learn tennis techniques at Red Ball Day

By Samantha Maiette


The Northwest Louisiana Community Tennis Association hosted Red Ball Day at the Natchitoches Tennis Complex May 12 to introduce children to tennis through hands-on activities.

Those who attended the free event were able to learn basic tennis skills, such as hitting the ball over the net, and participating in team building exercises. There was also paperwork for those who wished to continue tennis lessons through the NWLACTA.

Willie Paz, tennis director for the NWLACTA, said the goal of Red Ball Day is to build the tennis community to where it once was.
