Snazzy Tennis Youth Club Announces Winter Tennis Program
Tuesday, December 7th at Williamsburg Indoor Sports Complex (WISC)
It's getting dark early now, it's colder and the holidays are already here. Wondering what you'll do to burn all that endless energy your kids have this winter? Fear not, Snazzy Tennis has you covered! 
It is with great pleasure that Snazzy Tennis Youth Club announces our Winter Tennis program at the Williamsburg Indoor Sports Complex (WISC). We have teamed up with Danielle Moore, head tennis coach at WISC, to offer indoor, after school beginner tennis over the winter months for Snazzy Tennis youth ages 6 to 10 (or so). If families form their own groups of 4-6 players, costs will be around $15 per player per lesson.  
Danielle is hosting a Meet & Greet reception for Snazzy Tennis families on Tuesday, December 7th from 5-6pm at the WISC to answer questions about program pricing, dates/times and more. As food and drinks will be provided, please kindly CLICK HERE to RSVP so she can plan accordingly.   
With only three courts available at this time, if you are unable to attend the Meet & Greet, it is prudent for interested parents to form a small group and get in touch with Danielle regarding start dates/times. Danielle’s email is dmoore@thewisc.com. She can also be reached by phone or text at 757-283-8234. The WISC website has some additional information – https://www.thewisc.com/tennis.
