The children from Our House enjoyed special field trips at Burns Park Tennis Center in North Little Rock during the months of June and July.

Our House is a shelter for families who are temporarily homeless. In the past, USTA Arkansas has donated tennis equipment and worked with Our House staff to offer basic training on fundamentals and court set up. Our House then began offering their kids tennis a couple days a month.

 

The kids absolutely loved it and wanted the opportunity to play on real tennis courts with instruction from real teaching professionals. We were able to offer these children the opportunity to attend another field trip with real teaching professionals. During these field trips, the teaching professionals showed them how to use good form when hitting the ball, along with teaching them skills such as quickness when reacting during a match. This kids were able to play many games that can help them improve their skills as a tennis player but also show them just how much fun tennis can really be.

 

Thank you to all the Arkansas Tennis Professionals who donated their time to the children of Our House in 2018!
