Ft. Walton Beach Tennis Director, Erik Stenberg and Blue Water Bay Tennis Director, Doug Barthel promoted tennis to 10 Middle Schools in their area.  Over 150 juniors from Liza Jackson Charter School, St. Mary Catholic School, Bruner, Pryor, Meigs, Richbourg, Davidson, Lewis, Ruckel, and Destin Middle Schools participated in a fun day in February at both tennis centers to “kick start” their 2005 Middle School Tennis season.   Each of the professionals encouraged the schools to join the USTA and obtain tennis racquets, additional support, and resources to grow the game at their schools.  The Pros are also sponsoring a season ending tournament April 25 and 26 at the Ft. Walton Beach Tennis Center.
