"Tennis -- For the Health of It" will come May 8 to the New Milford Tennis & Swim Club as part of the United States Professional Tennis Association's "Tennis Across America" program.

Beginners and those who haven't played tennis in a while are welcome for a series of free clinics and instruction directed by club professional Dinesh Rajagopalan.

The event is co-sponsored by retailer Perfect Racquet of Brookfield.

"Through events like this, I hope to show people that tennis can be fun," said Mr. Rajagoplan, "a great workout and a sport for a lifetime."
