Luke Jensen Grand Slam Tennis Clinics.

Join former touring professional Luke Jensen as he runs several clinics here at the Dewitt Tennis Center. Luke was ranked as the #1 junior in the World and is also a Grand Slam Champion, winning the 1993 French Open Doubles title with his brother (Murphy). You may also know him as an ESPN tennis analyst.

Luke is well known all over the world for putting on fun and exciting clinics. Part of his routine includes serving to the players both right and left handed. Luke used to serve both ways on the tour and could serve more than 130 mph both left-handed and a right-handed.

Here are the details…

The cost for one of the four 1.5 hour clinics is $50 

Day = This 1-day event is on Sunday Dec 14, 2014.

1) 11:30-1 pm - High School Players #1
2) 1-2:30 pm - Middle School Players (grades 6-7-8)
3) 3-4:30 pm – Adults (18 & older)
4) 4:30-6 pm - High School Players #2

The two HS clinics above are the same, we are offering 2 options because we have a lot of those types of players. Each clinic will accept only 12 players so they will likely sell out fast. Registrations are accepted on a first come first serve basis.

Don't miss this chance to learn from a Grand Slam Champion!
