Mission

  • Make available the game of tennis that emphasizes fun, increase wellness & self-esteem and teaches life skills that participants can carry over to their everyday lives.

Winter Programs

As we slowly get back to normal following the measures taken to address the threat from COVID-19, we believe it is important for you to understand and acknowledge the following. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and individuals with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By having you or your child participate in the activities of the Reading Recreation Commission, you and your child are hereby acknowledging and assuming all risks related to exposure to COIVD-19, including the risk that your or your child will become a carrier of COVID-19 and expose others as a result.
