Tennis stars of the future will get the chance to get free instruction from a former professional tennis player — District Attorney Sam Sutter.

Young athletes from the age of 6 to 14 will get to participate in Sutter’s Free Youth Sports Program managed by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Brian Rose. The free clinics have been offered as a part of Sutter’s Volunteer Initiative, aimed at getting the area’s youth active and pro actively preventing crime. This July’s clinic will bring Sutter’s office to a total of 68 since 2007.

Sutter’s tennis lineage was inherited from his father, Cliff, who played at Wimbledon in the 1930s, and his Uncle Ernie who was also once a professional. Sutter played at Brown University and went on to play in 10 countries before attending law school.

The clinics will be held on July 12 and July 19 at the UMass Dartmouth tennis courts. Players aged 6-9 will be from 9-10 a.m. while ages 10-14 will be from 10:15-11:15. Both boys and girls are invited. Equipment is provided and all playing abilities are welcome.
