The Cayman Islands Tennis
Federation has received from Walkers the generous donation of US$10,000 for the
Walker’s Play & Stay Mini Tennis programme.
The next Walkers Play & Stay
Mini Tennis session is on Sunday 7 February at the International School at
Camana Bay from 4pm.
“Play & Stay Mini Tennis makes
tennis easier for all ages and abilities by using soft balls, small nets and
racquets,” said CITF volunteer Jenny Frizzelle.
“We’ve had three sessions so far
with over 40 participants from the age of two at each session.”
“Play & Stay tennis is simply
about having fun and getting out. Mini Tennis can be played anywhere and is
accessible. Thanks to Walkers who have sponsored this programme offering free
tennis there is no excuse for not giving it a try.”
David Berry, of the CITF has
enjoyed tennis in Cayman since his youth. He said: “There are so many benefits
from playing tennis and we’re keen to see the uptake of tennis in schools.
“This is our main focus for 2010
and we hope teachers tell their pupils to join us at the next session.”
“It is wonderful to hear this
programme has been so successful and we hope the wider community continues to
participate. Hopefully we will see more
new faces taking up tennis and enjoying themselves,” said Alice Mae Coe, Community
Liaison Officer for Walkers.
