ALBION – The Village of Albion Recreation Department’s tennis camp won’t start today due to wet courts outside Albion High School and the forecast calling for more rain.

There won’t be a tennis camp on Tuesday, the Fourth of July, but the camp will start Wednesday and continue through Friday from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

There is no pre-registration needed for the camp. Walk-up registration will be on Wednesday. An adult doesn’t need to be present for registration, but is encouraged, said John Grillo, the village’s recreation director.

Tennis experience is not required for the camp, which is funded by the U.S. Tennis Association.

Basic tennis skills will be taught to beginners along with tennis drills and low-level tennis competitive match situations. Scoring, rules and regulations will be taught along with tennis strategies, Grillo said.

Experienced tennis players will have an opportunity to drill and play matches throughout the week.

Tennis balls will be provided, and participants are encouraged to bring their own racquet. However, if players don’t have their own racquet, one will be provided.
