New Canaan Recreation Department
2019 Spring and Summer Tennis Program

The New Canaan Recreation Department has made it easy for everyone to grab a racquet and get
in the game. Join us as Tennis is the sport of a lifetime and an all new spring and summer tennis
program is now available. We are announcing the selection of two dynamic certified professional
instructors- Dan Scheuler and Shane O’Reilly returning to lead our 2019 program. Both Dan and
Shane have led the Recreation Tennis Instruction for many years to high acclaim and participant
satisfaction.
Our adult program is all-new, expanded, and mixes co-ed and family activities with round robins,
point play, doubles, cardio, and match play classes. The spring youth program is brand new and is
customized to follow the national coaching guidelines of smaller courts, racquets and low-bounce
balls. We will follow with a similar summer program for kids with flexible one-week classes making
it easier to schedule. A new Summer Junior Match Play Sunday class has also been added.
Check our website in June for additional special events and tournaments. These programs will
match the quality and intensity of any instruction you can find in the area but with one major
difference- affordability. Details of the entire spring and summer program are outlined under the
Recreation Department website www.newcanaan.info . You can sign up for any of the classes by
using our convenient on-line registration or visit the Recreation Department Office located in
Waveny House. Enrollment for all classes and clinics is limited so it is suggested to sign-up early.
See you on the courts.
