Teamwork in Chicago results in a great clinic on 3-3-18!



A combination of efforts by the Chicago District Tennis Association, Illinois USPTA led by Lindsay Geiger, PTR, Homewood Flossmoor (IL) Tennis& Fitness led by Umang Chadda, collegiate men’s and women's team from Chicago State University and University of Illinois at Chicago, Love to Serve, and others resulted in over 50 young tennis players participating in a "Family Tennis Clinic' prior to the match between Chicago State and UIC.  In addition, a court was set aside for everyone to work with Adaptive  students.  This was a rewarding day for all.  Mitch Granger, a former UIC player, donated his recent novel "Jack Stryder of Alexandria" to a deserving student in attendance.  This event's purpose was to expose college tennis to folks in the HF footprint.  We did a great job doing that and hope to continue this process with other college tennis teams in the Chicagoland area.
