The HC-CTA sponsored Quickstart mixers for the kids – one Saturday we had enough rain to ruin the courts. Everyone waited but it kept misting rain! HC-CTA volunteers, Mike Baer, Pete Landry, Larry Formichella, Carol Rosner and Bevie Walker set up the mini-nets on the Jackson Park rough parking lot surface. All 25 kids, volunteers and parents played QuickStart tennis with foam balls for two hours and no one wanted to quit. We shared a great lesson that day.

He’s back and he needs help!  Volunteers are needed – please contact Sheri Sparks.
