USTA Florida Community Coordinator Susie Bessire helped collect five Schandler Hall First Serve youngins to attended a press conference with tennis legend Jim Courier, First Serve site director Ivory Scott and the Lee County Community Tennis Association Executive Director Eldon Ridener. 

Courier has selected a Lee County First Serve site as one of the recipients of the Champions Cup Series event proceeds.


Bessire is thrilled about this good news for Lee County’s First Serve program!  She said Courier donated $50,000 at his first event in Texas.  She is hopeful that this will bring great support to the community and the local First Serve program.

“Jim was great with the kids,” Bessire said.  “He ate cookies with us, talked and signed autographs for each of the kids and some of their teachers too!  It was a great day for the kids as well as those of us who have put our hearts and souls into the kids and the First Serve Program.”


Bessire said the children spoke with Courier about their tennis games.

“You have never seen anyone beam the way Ivory Scott did,” she said.  “We were both so proud of those kids!”
