Thanks to Our Tennis Professionals for Teaching the Grandkids POP

Debbie McGeehan

Kids sure love to run around! Saturday, April 16, was Grandkids Day on the courts. The grandparents brought their grandchildren to the tennis courts after an hour of fun and games on the pickleball courts. They still had an enormous amount of energy!

Thanks to our tennis professionals TJ Duffy, Gene McGeehan, and John Sochacki. They had fun on the two courts for an hour with the girls and boys. The first half hour they experienced traditional tennis play. The next half hour they learned POP Tennis, which was a bit easier for them, using a paddle and a decompressed tennis ball. The grandparents enjoyed watching the kids learn a new sport while having fun.

The participants all left with a Wilson nylon backpack. We hope this event inspires young and old to get active and stay active! The SaddleBrooke Tennis Club was glad to participate in Grandkids Day. Thanks to the Fitness, Wellness and Recreation Committee for organizing Grandkids Days!
