We love to watch young ones try their hand at a new sport, especially when it goes to a good cause. As part of the Fundación MIR Family Day for Life, several of Casa de Campo’s youth came out to La Romana Country Club on Saturday morning for tennis clinics to work with the tennis department’s dedicated instructors on their techniques. Many of the players returned from last year’s clinic and we’re happy they’re continuing to love the game. Tennis is certainly one of those lifetime sports that attract people of all ages, and if learned properly can be an activity carried into one’s 80s. Children worked on improving their hand-eye coordination, holding the racquet correctly, connecting with the ball at the right time, and even a little bit of topspin. Serving is always an important area of focus that was given due attention, as is tennis etiquette. Girls and boys competed in short matches and made sure to shake hands afterward!
