The Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association held another successful session of its "Play Tennis" Program. The sessions are fun and interactive and provides a pathway for new beginners in the sport.

Today Brajaxaba Club joined in the training as some tennis juniors(including Jacobi Bain, BreAnn Ferguson, Brianna Houlgrave, Virgil Homere)participated in the session.

The BLTA thanks veteran coach Mr. Bradley Bain in lending a hand in assisting today to this developing program.  Young kids and newly PTC certified coaches alike had an opportunity to glean from his wealth of knowledge and experience. 


As young persons come to learn the sport there are many opportunities to give back  to the young  people.  Mr. Perry Newton, head of junior development stated that it is important  to collaborate within the tennis community and the "Play Tennis" program can only grow from those who  share their talents.  He also  communicated that "The children continue to be excited and eager about tennis."

President of the BLTA, Darnette Weir expressed pleasure in the "PlayTennis" program and hopes that interested persons will take full advantage of the opportunities to come together in the growth and development of tennis.

The program resumes on Saturday June 15th at The National Tennis Centre
and is free to children ages 5-17. Registration is  $1.
