VIRTUAL TENNIS PROGRAM
During the height of the pandemic, JTCC offered free online 10-week sessions for the GEICO Game On! program in Washington, DC and Sandy Spring Bank Advantage Prince George’s and Police Athletic League in Maryland.
The 45-minute classes introduced youth to the fundamentals of tennis, including stroke development, tennis knowledge, hand-eye coordination and fitness, preparing them for success when they first step on the tennis court. Additionally, participants were offered a tennis racquet and a can of tennis balls at no charge.
Virtual tennis was highlighted in the 2021 GEICO Champions Celebration – check out the video below!
