Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami - end of the year party

December 11, 2006 02:29 PM

For three years, USTA Florida has provided tennis to more than 2,000 kids at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami – Hank Kline and South Beach locations.

USTA Florida volunteer Rick Pardon enjoys working with the local Boys & Girls Club youth.

"Tennis is a great way to teach young kids how to play well in a group setting," Pardon said.  "Sharing the excitement and social benefits of tennis with others is one of my favorite aspects of the sport."

Twice a week, the children at both locations attended tennis lessons.  Thanks to Pardon and Brittany Yapp-Shing for teaching tennis to these children and to the Boys & Girls Club staff, the program was a wonderful success.

At the end of the year party, free Papa John’s pizza and tennis certificates were handed out to the children.   Wilson Racquets were presented to most improved and best sportsmanship award winners.
