Class Recap: Week 15

Can you believe we're headed towards the end of the season already? July and August have just flown by! This past Saturday, things went back to our regularly scheduled programming after an amazing intra-league Davis Cup tournament last week.

Marcy played a lot of games and match play, and broke into serves. Lafayette Gardens had a 2:1 student to volunteer ratio, as did Sumner. A perfect opportunity for the volunteers to work with the students on the fundamentals. Tompkins Houses had Family Day, so there wasn't too much tennis happening there. Overall a really nice day.

This coming Saturday, we have one of our big events of the season: Arthur Ashe Kids Day. AAKD is an opportunity for parents and kids to experience tennis together on the main stage. Kids will go on the courts to play with the pros and participate in fun games. They will also get to watch the top pros practice. Buses leave at 9:00AM, we get back at 4:30PM.

P.S. Thank you to everyone who support KCTL during our annual fundraiser. It was a spectacular evening and we hope to have photos soon!

Fundraiser: Less than 2 weeks away!

Don't miss it -- our 4th annual fundraiser is less than 2 weeks away! Get your tickets now online at: kctl4.eventbrite.com.

Ticket and raffle sales go towards supporting our amazing program that brings FREE tennis lessons to over 100 kids every Saturday at four public housing locations in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Every year, we take the kids, parents and volunteers to Arthur Ashe Kids Day (AAKD) where they get to play tennis games, watch professional players practice (last year there was a Federer sighting!) and most importantly, spend a day with hundreds of other tennis enthusiasts of all ages from all walks of life. It's a really amazing day where we share that special feeling that is the love of the game.

Here are a few photos from last year's AAKD. View the full album on Facebook.
