NPTA Winter League sees strong turnout
The North Platte Tennis Association kicked off the first week of their Winter League
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - The North Platte Tennis Association kicked off their Winter League this week. The League features round robin doubles play on Wednesday nights from 7PM - 10PM and on Saturday mornings from ten to noon. Local teaching pro and NPTA board member John Lehmer also offers a clinic on Wednesday evenings from 6PM - 7PM.
Tennis is played indoors at the Rec Center in North Platte. The Winter League will run through February 27, 2021. There are still open spots available to join the league and the clinic. Anybody over the age of fourteen is invited to participate in league play.
“It’s such a wonderful game that you can start playing at the age of four and go all the way until you want to stop...I’ve met some people in their late 80′s and early 90′s that are still playing,” said NPTA board member Marcelle Strydom.
Strydom played college tennis at UNK and is very invested in the league’s success.
“We’ve had quite the turnout this year. We honestly had about fifteen people show up for clinic and drill sessions on Wednesday night with about fifteen more people playing Wednesday night league. This [Saturday] morning we have a good fifteen to twenty people here playing and having fun,” added Strydom.
