While professional players are taking the courts at Westgate Park for the Dothan Pro Classic, some little athletes got to learn a few skills of their own!
More than five hundred schoolchildren visited the Westgate Rec Center to take part in a Kid's Tennis Clinic.
Some of the professionals take time from the court to join the clinic.
These pros help teach the kids how to hold their rackets and hit the ball using a "safety first" foam ball.
Sponsors hope to encourage kids to consider tennis as a recreational activity.
