CLARKSVILLE - Austin Peay State University's tennis program hosted more than 60 kids at it's free Kids Tennis Clinic, Feb. 25.

Aided by the Clarksville Tennis Association and the local United State Tennis Association, the clinic began at 9:30 a.m., and lasted until the Govs afternoon match against Lipscomb.

"It was a good day for our teams," head coach Malik Tabet said. "We always enjoy the opportunity to reach out into the community and promote the game of tennis. We couldn't have done it without the CTA and USTA. This is definitely something we'll be doing again."

Inside the Governors Tennis Center, the Lady Govs conducted a drills for all skill levels, ranging from proper form on hitting a forehand and backhand; learning to volley from both sides and the perfecting the service game.

After the clinic, the kids were treated to lunch of hot dogs and hamburgers, while also being invited to take pictures with The Gov. Prior the Govs match, kids were offered the opportunity to win prizes using the skills learned during the clinic.
