Free Tennis Clinic was provided to the young children from The Ranfurly Home For Children by The Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association(BLTA).
Over the past months The BLTA happily welcomed the kids at The National Tennis Centre. President Darnette Weir stated "We wanted to provide this avenue for the young boys and girls from the children's home to experience the sport of tennis knowing that if we can make their life a bit happier or better, we would have achieved our goal."
President Weir extends thanks to all of the coaches who unselfishly gave of their time and talent to the Ranfurly Home children. Those coaches include Mr Wes Rolle, Mr Perry Newton Jr., Mr. Mike Butler, Mr. Ceron Rolle and Mr. Steve Taylor. Tennis players Donte Armbrister and Jackson Mactaggart also participated and provided assistance.
Over the time period the kids were instructed in various aspects of the game. During the session the kids were instructed in forehands and backhands and also played matches. They had a fun and productive time!
The last session for 2019 was held in December and the Blta expects to resume this outreach with the Ranfurly Home in January 2020.
