Recipient's comments: "The county hasn't had a junior [tennis] program of this magnitude before. We were very pleased with the number of participants we had; there were 90 kids involved. The idea was to get kids started in tennis and hope they will see how enjoyable the game is and continue playing on their own. It's great to see the kids get involved in the game."
