We won! Palmer Park Junior Tennis Academy
received award from USTA
In 2014, we were the top contender in the US Tennis Association’s My Gift to Kids’ Tennis campaign in the Midwest. Since the Palmer Park Tennis Academy received the most donations, we received an additional $1,000 from USTA. Only one program from each district was selected, and Palmer Park was selected for Southeastern Michigan.
Palmer Park’s Junior Tennis Academy was a huge success last summer with dozens of students under the age of 10 learning to love the game of tennis, having a great time on the Palmer Park court, and even participating in their first tournaments!
Given the great response from parents and children, People for Palmer Park expanded the Palmer Park Tennis Academy to include a winter program off-site at the Dearborn Racquet and Health Club. That program is now complete.
Please watch the video below and see how you can help our young Detroit tennis players continue learning this great sport and become the next generation of champs!
