The Southern California Tennis Association brought an exciting brand of tennis at the Telemundo celebration as part of the 13th Annual Health Fair recently at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Tennis was a part of the health and fitness event that also included free health tests and screenings, tennis, yoga, dance, zumba, kids activities and games, cooking demonstrations and much more.
The SCTA set up mini 10-and-Under tennis courts for the approximately 30,000 health fair participants with the goal of offering tennis to all. SCTA event staff included Tennis Service R epresentatives Tiffany Mai, Aisling Bowyer and Donald Wong, as well as NJTL Manager Evan Smith and USTA School’s Trainer Barbara Tscherne.
“It was great to offer the Hispanic families an opportunity to try tennis for the first time,” said Barbara Tscherne, a Teaching Pro at the Neighborhood Junior Tennis Program (NJTP) in Sylmar . “We also gave the kids free membership (10& Under) and information to sign up for affordable NJTL lessons.”
