A youth tennis clinic hosted by the Cambria Tennis Club and the Cambria Youth Athletic Association will resume June 12 and run for five additional weeks on Saturday mornings. A total of 53 Cambria and Central Coast youth have signed up for the clinics.

Providing instruction are by Ray Campos, Ron Ruggles, Joe Zaragoza, Shawn Weaver, Bud Goff, Kyle Reed, Michelle Moore and members of the Coast Union High School girls tennis team.

Campos and Ruggles organized the event with the support of tennis club President Janos Beny.

The young tennis enthusiasts are getting expert instruction, fitness and conditioning training, fresh air and sunshine, according to club member Tom Cochrun.

“At a time when the United States struggles with declining fitness, an addiction to texting, gaming, and indoor screen activity, it is wonderful so many local youth are participating,” he added, “and we trust future Coast Union Tennis players will be inspired. We were a bit overwhelmed by the enthusiastic response and pleased so many parents and guardians are as supportive as they are.”
