Legendary coach Nick Bollettieri stopped by the practice courts at the Citi Open last Friday to offer some words of wisdom to all the players in the 2016 NJTL Excellence Teams Cup.
JTCC was the host venue for the 10&Under event in which 11 teams from 9 cities competed. The kids had a full program of activities including their day at the Citi Open learning from Bollettieri and then watching big serving Ivo Karlovic Croatian take down American Jack Sock in the quarterfinals. The competitors also had the opportunity to visit some of Washington’s most famous monuments in addition to their action packed tennis schedule at JTCC. The overall winners were Team NYJTL for the Carey Leeds Center in New York with Team Wheaton from Minneapolis claiming the sportsmanship award. Cody Gray, Camille Hall, Vanessa Popesca, Luca Bonfigli, Nikola Galov and Arjun Prabhakar represented JTCC superbly and finished in 3rd place overall.
