Lobs & Lessons Summer Program

COVID-19 Update Regarding Summer Programs

May 29, 2020

In response to concerns about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and in support of the wellness and safety of all members of our community, Virginia Commonwealth University has cancelled all in-person youth activities on-campus for summer 2020. We understand the inconvenience this may cause as you navigate this change, and although we will not see you, we hope to see you when we re-open programs this fall.

If you would like to support the Lobs & Lessons program during these unprecedented times, please donate here. Your donation will go directly toward 2020-2021 scholarships for youth.
As we move forward, we will release updates and fall programs on our website as information becomes available. Please check our Facebook page for ideas for at-home tennis activities and updates on programs.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact We hope to see you soon!
