Danny Jones Schools Tennis
Schools from North Charleston including Matilda Dunston and North Charleston Elementary School are practicing and playing matches against each other. There is a K – 2 team and a 3 – 5 team. Students are learning basic techniques and match play based on “10 and Under Tennis” which is used by the United States Tennis Association. All equipment and instruction is provided free by the LYTA. Teachers and staff members from both schools are doing a great job helping out!
