Delray Beach Hosts Successful USA Tennis Florida Workshop

July 8, 2005 11:11 AM

The Delray Beach Tennis Patrons Community Tennis Association hosted its first United States Tennis Association Recreational Coaches Workshop on June 25 at the Delray Beach Tennis Center.  Led by USTA national trainer Butch Staples, high school students taught the local program along with Arthur Ashe Middle School's new National Junior Tennis League leaders.

Cheryl Rivera of USA Tennis Florida, local coaches, teachers, organizational staff and park and recreation department staff devoted their time to make this workshop a success.  The City of Lauderhill and the City of Ft. Lauderdale were among the organizations that made possible this day of fun learning!

Administrative Manager for the City of Lauderhill Daphne Brown, M.S., CPRP, returned for this workshop after a 10-year hiatus.  Brown is now offering free and low-cost lessons at local parks and recreation facilities.

“The workshop instruction was clear, concise and easy to understand from one of the nation’s leading professional tennis instructors,” Brown said.  “Butch [Staples] conducted a friendly, non-threatening and very energetic full day of tennis instruction.  It went by too quickly.  Thanks to everyone at the USTA for making this possible!”
