A big thank you to Tennis Alliance of Anne Arundel County! In just a few weeks, our participants learned the love of tennis! On our first day, no one even wanted to give it a try, but after a few sessions, most of our participants started asking to play every single day! We’re sad to say goodbye at the end of the Fall tennis program, but excited to keep practicing with our brand new rackets!
