During the month of June, middle and high school youth participated in a summer camp, the Guadelupe Catholic Mission in Fellsmere, FL.  Because of the East Coast Tennis Foundation, Inc., who sponsored the event, campers were provided a chance to try Ralleyball, introducing tennis to these children for the first time.

Ralleyball is a game designed for beginners where a match is played and points are awarded when the ball goes over the net.  Modifications are made to court dimensions based on age and skill level.  At the camp, students learned the fundamentals of tennis and played matches against each other throughout the two-week program.

East Coast Tennis President Mercedes Sideregts was on hand to see the children participate.

"It was a great program for the children,” Sideregts said.  “And now that they know what tennis is and how it is played,  I am positive they will  join in at school when offered either during PE or through an after-school program."
