For the past two weekends, KCTL has held volunteer training sessions, and it's been a great success. Over 30 new individuals showed up to be a part this season. We all played some tennis, got to know each other a bit and then split into our respective teams based on site. (Let's go Tompkins!)

We have all types of volunteers--high school and college students to retirees; lifelong Brooklyn residents to Southern transplants to a California girl; artists and lawyers, businessmen and sports coaches, tech entrepreneurs and city employees; tennis collegiate athletes to never-held-a-racket-before newbies.

It's really great to see so many people come together to spend a few hours doing a good thing--motivating, mentoring and inspiring the kids! This season hasn't even started yet and we're off to a great start!

Thank you volunteers, we couldn't do it without you.
