For the 38th summer in-a-row, the prestigious Van Der Meer Tennis clinics have returned to Sweet Briar College. This summer, they're welcomed by brand new tennis courts.
After breaking ground in late March, construction of the new courts concluded at the end of May. Van Der Meer Tennis has a longstanding partnership with the College and the athletics department is excited to welcome them with upgraded facilities.
The clinics, which runs through June 18, host adults from across the mid-Atlantic. All participants work with Van Der Meer's personally trained, PTR professionals throughout their time on campus. During the clinics, they will cover stroke production with video analysis, supervised matchplay, competitive drilling, and tactical sessions.
Steve Rickard, who has served as Van Der Meer's Director of Tennis Operations since 1983, will be leading the three clinic sessions.
