People for Palmer Park | Detroit, Michigan

“Our summer program began as a 10 & Under tennis program in 2011 utilizing the QuickStart Tennis method of teaching tennis to children between five and ten years old. A pilot program was initiated this summer to include children ages 11-14 years of age, in order to expose tennis to more youth and to accommodate those young players who had aged out of the 10 & Under program. We had 97 junior players participate in both our 10 & Under program and pilot program for children 11-14 years old. Parents have told us how their children's socialization skills greatly improved during the summer program. The MYTEF grant allowed us to keep our costs low, and helped us reach many children who otherwise may not have not been exposed to tennis.”
