News and Notes

August 11, 2009 01:09 AM

I have added the pictures of the "little guys" who attended Diane's Day Camp in June. Click HERE to check those out. The photos were taken by the WTA roving photographer (Christie Martin) and are of excellent quality. If any of you know these kids, tell them they all looked great!

Please note that I did not download photos of us mature folks who attended the adult sessions. I am not sure "the Internet" is ready for that!

ReBalls

Thanks to Billy and Julie Bishop, Cherry Smyly and a couple of anonymous donors, we have another four hundred recycled tennis balls ready to go to the schools. When you consider that we sent six hundred and fifty two weeks ago then I think we must be getting a fairly good percentage of the old balls that are produced by WTA players. :-)

We will not have a "Friday Night Lights" program in August due to the re-surfacing of the courts.
