The USTA Eastern Metro Region/Friends of South Oxford Park Community Tennis Festival
USTA Eastern Metro Board member Mel Swanson and Friends of South Oxford Park President Dwayne Broadnax organized a free kids tennis clinic for the community which was sponsored by the USTA Metro Board. The kids had a great time on the court and enjoyed a delicious pizza party after. Board President Jackie Clark, Member-at-Large Jonathan Williams and Brooklyn Representative Mel Swanson, along with volunteers from the Junior Tennis Clinic Inc. and the Junior Metro Region Board Committee and the community, helped out.
