US Tennis Association Supports Suncoast Student To Start Tennis Program At Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary
The United States Tennis Association (USTA) has provided a financial grant and training to Gabrielle Holtzman, a Suncoast High School junior and varsity tennis player, to start a “10 and Under Tennis” program as part of Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune Elementary School’s Afterschool program. The financial grant, from the USTA’s “Share the Love” program, was used to purchase 40 junior tennis racquets, youth tennis nets and balls.
Every Friday, ten Suncoast students conduct a tennis clinic for the neighboring elementary school’s Afterschool program students.
Dr. Linda Cartlidge, Principal of Suncoast High School, noted “This youth tennis program at Bethune elementary school, is an excellent example of how our Suncoast students mentor the younger students at our sister school on our joint campus.”
Mrs. Grant, Director of Bethune’s after school program, said “Our students tremendously enjoy the Suncoast students visit each Friday afternoon for the tennis clinic. It’s great to see the camaraderie between the Bethune and Suncoast students.”
