Want to try a new sport? Then Jasper is the place to be.
Jasper has a lot to do in the summer, including having many sports teams for locals to join in during the summer season.
This summer season, John Pelosi launched women’s tennis lessons.
The lessons started out as a casual conversation among the community but then lead to numerous women having great interest in the idea.
The tennis lessons started June 15 and went until July 20.
They took place every Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m.
Twelve women registered for the program this summer season.
The lessons were taught by John Pelosi himself and they focused on beginner to the intermediate skill level.
These women’s tennis lessons will take place again in the summer of 2022.
With rising interest in the lessons, John is hoping for an expansion in the number of women who will sign up.
