Tennis Anyone?

My students need two cases of tennis balls to start our first tennis program in grades K-6th.

Please help us teach our students to learn the benefits of regular physical activity while engaging in the lifelong sport of tennis in a safe and supportive environment. I have 19 students who are playing junior high tennis. We are a low income school that includes all special needs students in the regular physical education class.

My budget will not allow me to buy all of the supplies I need and I would like to start teaching the lifelong game of tennis at an earlier age while also teaching kids specific skills, strokes, and strategy of tennis. This is the first year that anyone has shown an interest in junior high tennis.

With two cases of tennis balls, our school could start a tennis program in the elementary while also allowing the junior high tennis students plenty of balls to practice drills, skills, strokes and the strategy of tennis both during and after school.

Your donation will make it possible for 189 students to progressively and proficiently develop fundamental skills and learn to play tennis through fun, action-packed lessons at school.
