Free Clinics at Plaza Hotel & Casino
Offered by Steve Cole and Bill Batley. Go and get free instruction from two of the best instructors; enjoy free open play; meet other players from around the Valley; and, top it off with free parking. What a deal!
Hey, wouldn't it be great to take your playing group down to the Plaza, get a lesson that will take your game to the next level, and have some fun practicing and playing on the Plaza courts.....all for free?
Better yet, let's get the word out to parents and grandparents to take their kids and grand kids to the Plaza on a Saturday morning and help them learn (from a Pro) the sport they'll be playing for a lifetime!

(Free Clinics offered on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. Check with Steve or Bill for schedule. The schedule is usually posted on local Facebook sites)
