Tennis Lessons -- Hi, I’m Steven Chiartano. I am giving tennis lessons to players from beginner to intermediate level. I’ve been playing tennis with the Collinsville Cardinals for 3 years. As a freshman I went to state playing #1 doubles and returned to state this year playing #1 singles. You will be learning all aspects of tennis including forehands, backhands, serving, and volleys. High school tennis teams are always looking for experienced players and this is a great way to start. If interested please call 371-9368.
I have photo CDs (paid for) and ready to pick up for: Bethel, Blissitt, Collins, Crutcher, Curtis, Davis, Graham, Harker, Isam, KIte, Lutz, Ch.Phillips, Prock, Turner and Wallis. -- Ted 10:30pm Friday May 29th -- (I'll start working on the others that still owe me payments now) -- I have all of the CDs finished --9:30pm Sat. 5/30/2009
