Tennis workshop in Boca provides new techniques for all

November 21, 2006 08:47 AM


A six-hour USTA Florida recreational coach workshop (RCW) was held for local participants at the Boca Tennis Center in Boca Raton Nov. 4.

USTA Florida community coordinator Cheryl Rivera, tennis supervisor Dale LePrevost, head professional Jim Tierney and national trainer Susan Allshouse worked together to arrange and conduct the workshop.

"It was so great to see such a diverse group of participants," Rivera said.  "RCWs are the essence of the community aspect of USTA's mission to promote and develop tennis!"

One participant, Michele Sparkling, is the swimming lieutenant for the City of Boca Raton.  She said she is going to use some of the skills she learned at the tennis workshop with her swimmers!

Ryan Reckley of Boca Raton's Athletic Department had never played tennis before.

"This is fun!!" he said.

Participants ranged from school principals and non-tennis players to tennis coaches.  All left having learned new techniques for teaching tennis to large groups of people – young and old!
