For the second year the Boulevard Club in partnership with the Doug Philpott Inner City Children’s Tennis Fund is providing the Parkdale community with a junior indoor tennis program. This fall and winter program is offered to children between the ages of 7 and 12 and runs from November 6th, 2016 to March 5th, 2017. Every Saturday evening twenty-one children make their way to the Boulevard Club to participate in this free program that focuses on developing fundamental skills for children to play tennis – the sport of a lifetime. In addition to skill development, a strong focus is placed on developing a love for the game of tennis.
Thank you to the Boulevard Club members for realizing the importance of these lessons and forfeiting their court time and stepping up to sponsor the cost of equipment, clothing and tennis instruction. We are truly grateful to Paul Cairns for suggesting this program and then organizing it for the children. Also a big thank you to instructors Jamie Noskiewicz, Meagan Newman and Saad Abdullah and volunteer Zack Willson for their tennis expertise.
