Ninety-five degree heat did not prevent 98 kids, 30 team captains and their enthusiastic parents from participating in the 2006 Ralleyball Tennis Jamboree at the Orlando Fitness and Racquet Club Saturday, Oct. 21.

With a focus on TENNIS & FUN, this one-day regional event included beginning tennis players from Hernando, Volusia and Orange counties.  Ralleyball, a format of team tennis play, was the featured activity of the day, and the game “hit for prizes” was also a favorite among participants.

The kids had a chance to win tennis racquets, backpacks and tennis bags during a raffle.  Coaches, volunteers and parents assisted while cheering on 17 teams – 8 & under and 12 & under – including four NJTL programs competing in a round-robin format.  Four rounds were completed before players devoured 30 pizzas!

At the awards ceremony, all players received a USTA Jr. Team Tennis trophy.  Two sportsmanship award winners were announced: 8 & under – Natalie Diaz; 12 & under – Katie Viola.  Congratulations, girls!

Post-tennis, players cooled off in the pool and partied with music provided by an on-site DJ.  Congratulations to all the teams and kudos to all the team captains and parents for their support.  Everyone had an excellent time!
