It was a sunny and warm Saturday this past weekend when friends and families of the Junior Tennis Academy turned up at La Terraza Tennis Center for the Children’s Tennis Tournament. In the first of its kind, the resort hosted a tournament open to all kids 5 and up – regardless of membership – just to have some fun on the courts!
The event which was organized by Casa de Campo’s new tennis director Matías Territoriale was excellent in showing children a good time as well as teaching them some important fundamentals about the sport. More than thirty kids participated in friendly rounds of competition where young ones and teens played in doubles format. Parents happily watched from the sidelines as their children worked to improve their swings, serves, hand-eye coordination, and get some much-need outdoor recreation!
Everyone turned out a winner and received Certificates of Participation as well as cool T-shirts and medals! The day certainly acted to encourage youth to join the Junior Tennis Summer Camp starting on June 15th (more details coming soon!) and the Jr. Tennis Academy that officially begins in September. Both children and parents expressed how excited they are to continue with Casa de Campo’s tennis programs. Inscriptions are already open for Fall’s tennis academy that plays two days a week, and discounts are available for members and siblings.
Keep your enthusiasm for tennis going strong and plan your weekend with Team Tenis RD this Saturday and Sunday! Come watch the pros and athletes from the Dominican Republic’s top clubs play in the second stage of their 2017 tournament at La Terraza for the first-time-ever in Casa!
