A Grand Slam Day: ABC Hosts End of Year Tennis Extravaganza for Young Athletes

On Friday, May 10, 2024, the spirit of sportsmanship and fun was in full swing as 5th and 6th grade students from Pleasant Hill, Parker Woods, and Cheviot Elementary gathered for ABC’s Tennis End of Year Celebration. This special event, held at the indoor tennis facility at Walnut Hills High School, provided an exciting day of tennis-related activities, completely free of charge for the students and their families.

The day began with eager anticipation as students arrived, accompanied by their dedicated coaches. To kick off the event, the students participated in a group stretching session, emphasizing the importance of good habits before engaging in athletic activities.

Following the warm-up, the students embarked on a rotation through various game stations, each designed to highlight the skills they had developed throughout their time in the tennis program. From target practice to the engaging “hungry crocodile” game, every station offered a unique and fun challenge, keeping the young athletes enthusiastically engaged.

After the morning activities wrapped up, the students enjoyed a well-deserved lunch, featuring delicious pizza and fresh salad from LaRosa’s. The free meal provided a perfect opportunity for the kids to recharge and socialize with their friends.

The excitement didn’t end there. As each student prepared to leave, they were presented with an array of ABC goodies. These ABC take-home gifts included a fidget spinner, a lanyard keychain, and a handy sling bag to carry everything. But the highlight of the day was undoubtedly the brand new tennis racket each student received, ensuring they could continue practicing and enjoying tennis long after the event.

ABC’s Tennis End of Year Celebration was more than just a fun day; it was a memorable experience that celebrated the hard work and dedication of these young athletes, fostering a love for the sport that will last a lifetime.
