Dana Hall coaches and players taught young girls about game fundamentals and tennis skills—all in an atmosphere fueled by fun, interactivity and aspiration. The clinic was held indoors in the Shipley Center gymnasium. Girls were grouped by age and ability.
Dana Hall School's Girls Athletic Clinics provide an opportunity for girls in grades 1-5 to enjoy athletic clinics among a variety of sports throughout the year.

    "My favorite Dana Hall activity has been riding because the trainers at the Equestrian Center are really great and helpful. I always feel like I'm learning and improving while having fun."
