Ask-A-Pro Tennis Blog

We're going to be staying in a condo on Isle of Palms this next week with two of our sons, 16 and 10. The 16 year old starts high school season next week. The 10 year old plays mostly green dot ball. Both of them would like to get some tennis in during the week. We wondered about the cost of private lessons or the possibility of group programs. Thank you.
