“Hands that Help” Doubles Tournament

Written by Thiroshan Chetty, our Director of Tennis.

What a better way to give back to our community than through tennis and service! Members, please join us on December 14th for our annual “Hands that Help” Doubles Tournament. We are encouraging all tennis participants to bring a bag of grocery items for one of the 30 families that we feed. Some of the items that are delivered are food, clothing, holiday gifts, furniture, and lots of love.

How It All Started…

This project started about five years ago with the intent of helping families in our local community who have fallen through the cracks. Volunteers, members, junior tennis players, and my entire staff coordinate this two day event  by connecting the club and the community. We personally drive to every home and deliver the necessary goods to the families prior to Christmas.
