Immediately following the 5K for Clay, join us for an Open House, featuring all that Parks and Recreation has to offer.  There will be information booths featuring different classes and programs, as well as demonstrations to try out the fun before signing up.  There will be door prizes, refreshments and more!  You can also take a tour of the Clay Madsen Recreation Center and see the many amenities the facility has to offer.  The Round Rock Public Library will also be onsite with information on their many programs.

As part of the Open House, come join Tennis Professional Jack Alsup for a Tennis Play Day and learn all about the U.S. Tennis Association's 10 and Under Tennis Program.  Demo stations will be set up for players to try out the equipment and receive guidance from an instructor.  This is a free event, but pre-registration is encouraged (*20411).  For ages 4-10 years.
