Local tennis pro Mary Pat Faley and tennis Hall of Famer Nick Bollettieri recently teamed up in Calabasas to share their love of the game, and teach tennis to hundreds of local children and adults.
Bollettieri has helped mold the games of some of the all-time greats at his famed IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. He has worked with Grand Slam champions like Jim Courier, Andre Agassi, Maria Sharapova and Monica Seles.
The four-day event of on-court tennis instruction and fun took place at the Calabasas Tennis & Swim Center. Bollettieri, who in 2012 was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, is now 84 years old, but still spends up to six hours a day on the court teaching tennis.
