TENNIS HIGH POINT PARK TENNIS CENTER 42l W. Spring Creek Parkway (972) 941-7170 www.highpointtennis.com

Ken Sumrow......................................................Director of Tennis Kevin Maynard.................................Assistant Center Supervisor Dencil Johnson.............................Coordinator of Adult Programs Phil Olesen.................................Coordinator of Junior Programs Charlotte Ereckson...............................Tennis Center Specialist Tennis Professionals: Judy Adams, Ross Boling, Tommy Chiu, Duane Covell, Kendall Hibbs, Dan Rasor, Mike Seybold, Bob Somabut, Clint Sumrow, Brad Watson and Larry Whitson High Point Park Tennis Center consists of 21 lighted outdoor tennis courts, practice wall, playground and pro shop with rest rooms and dressing facilities. Lessons, leagues and tournaments are offered on a regular basis for those wanting organized activities. For players not wanting a structured activity, many courts are open for reservations.

Registration Tennis registration may be completed by using internet, in-person or by telephone starting Saturday, January 7. Please see “How to Register” information for detailed instructions.

Hours of Operation Monday thru Sunday -- *7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. *Tennis Center opens at 9 a.m. from October 1 thru March 31. The tennis center may close early due to inclement weather and/ or lack of court demand.

Reservations Court reservations may be made in person or by telephone at (972) 941-7170 between 9 a.m. and 10:30 p.m., Monday through Sunday. A person may have only one reservation at a time (you must finish your first reservation before a second reservation can be made).

Instruction Teen-Adult classes have a minimum of six students and a maximum of ten students per class. Youth classes have a maximum of eight students. Any group of two or more players may schedule a special class by contacting High Point staff at (972) 941-7170. Group lessons are very popular and some classes fill very quickly. To assure a continuous chain of instruction, it is recommended that students enroll for multiple sessions at the time of initial registration. For example, a student should enroll for a Beginner session in the first session, an Advanced Beginner I group in the second session and an Advanced Beginner II group in the third session.

QuickStart Tennis High Point participates year round in the QuickStart Tennis play format, a national program designed to help children learn, rally, and play quickly. Using shorter and lighter rackets, balls that are easy to keep in play, and court dimensions tailored to smaller players, youngsters from ages 5-10 pick up the game very quickly. In a short time, young players are able to keep the ball in play and play points just like older and more experienced players. In time, as students’ games improve and as they mature physically, they move to traditional rackets, balls, and courts. QuickStart is a great way to introduce children to the great game of tennis!

OUR MISSION... The nationally accredited Plano Parks and Recreation Department operates under the following mission:

Enriching Plano through parks, facilities, programs and resource stewardship. A comprehensive variety of recreational opportunities, structured and unstructured, are available to individuals regardless of race, socioeconomic level, color, sex, national origin or ability. The community recreation program in Plano includes a cooperative venture between the City of Plano and the Plano Independent School District. This arrangement meets the requirements for recreation programs and facilities and conserves available tax dollars. In this manner, the leisure needs of every Plano citizen can be met at a comparatively low cost. Financial assistance is available for annual tennis passes, memberships and recreation course programs. Please call 972-9417155 for additional information. Inclusion in many of our programs is possible for those with special needs. It is important that you contact Therapeutic Recreation at 972941-7272, prior to registration, for details on how we can support your abilities, interests and desire to participate. The City of Plano Parks and Recreation Department assures equal employment opportunity for all citizens without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or handicap status. Full consideration will be given to the employment of all persons for jobs in which they are qualified.

PLANO STAGES Plano’s Stages, a division of Plano Parks and Recreation, is committed to providing the community with opportunities to enjoy quality music, dance, theatre, and cultural events at any of our three publically owned and operated performance venues: the Courtyard Theater, the Amphitheater at Oak Point Park, and the Cox Building Playhouse. The Courtyard Theater, recipiant of the Greater Dallas Planning Council’s 2007 Urban Design Award, was the first gymnasium built for the Plano School District. In 2001, the gymnasium was converted into the steller, 325-capacity theater we know and love today. The Amphitheater at Oak Point Park, a beautiful, 1,200-capacity bowl-style venue, is tucked deep into the heart of Plano’s 800-acre Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve. The “Plano Amp,” as it is locally known, houses major concerts, cultural festivals and speical events of all kinds. The Amp’s picturesque and open-air setting makes it an ideal location to enjoy an evening of entertainment. The Cox Building Playhouse, a 90-capacity black-box style space, is a versitile, state-of-the-art venue used by local performers and touring acts, special performances and meeting. Calendars for all three venues can be found at www.planostages.com. Each one of these handsome and well-maintained spaces is available for rent by the general public, non-profit organizations and corporate groups. Form more information, please call 972-941-5611.
