This past Saturday, Teach Me Tennis concluded its fifth biannual Teach Me Tennis Tournament at the Darlington School. Participants came from five Floyd County schools, as well as schools in Calhoun and Rockmart, and included children in the Primary and Elementary level.
Glenwood Primary School won the Primary division, while Model Elementary School won the Elementary division. The winners receive the Teach Me Tennis trophy engraved with their name to keep until the next tournament in November. This season saw 150 participants.
Teach Me Tennis is a six-session, after-school program focused on introducing elementary age students to tennis. On the first day, students are given a tennis racket to keep throughout the program and after.
With the help of the United States Tennis Association, schools receive new equipment such as nets, tennis balls, and rackets from Teach Me Tennis to ensure students are learning the sport in the best possible manner.
