You’ve always wanted to play racquetball, but didn’t know how. The game looks like so much fun, but where do you begin? Maybe you learned to play by chance but don’t really understand the rules of the game. If any of these sound familiar, then THIS is the class you need to take!
Experienced instructor and avid player, Gretchen Perigo will be providing 1/2 hour Racquetball clinics in December. There are opportunities for morning or evening sessions.
Clinics will be given:
5:00 - 5:30pm
7:40 - 8:10am
5:40 - 6:10pm
8:20 - 8:40am
6:20 - 6:40pm
Please call in to reserve your day and time slot. You may take the clinic as often as you would like. This is a member-only benefit. Because of the court size, each class is limited to three members.
