Oregon School Tennis Play Day was organized by PE teacher Bianca Martinez who attended the USTA/ATA Skillastics training last fall. She asked USTA trainer Mitch Joyce to head up activities. For two days in February, Mitch, Bianca, and ATA volunteers ran tennis rotations with over 180 elementary students each day! Two courts were overflowing. with at sometimes over 80 children, learning tennis skills and having a great time. Mitch again demonstrated his skills in working with beginning tennis players and this ended up being fun for everyone! Big thanks to Mitch, Bianca, and to all who volunteered: Janet, Joe, Anke, John, and Evelyn.
