The weekend event will feature sports competitions and a wellness workshop for adults
On Saturday, May 17, Sports Explorer will host a fun-filled celebration of the ninth annual National Women’s Health Week entitled “A Taste of Tennis” at Crenshaw High School.
The event, which will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., will feature a tennis party in celebration of Tennis Month and workshops that will feature belly dancing, drumming, basketball and baseball competitions along with several guest speakers.
This will be the third year the event has come to Crenshaw and it’s promising to be one of the best as it will not only showcase the young talent in the community but also keep the parents healthy as well.
The Major League Baseball Pitch, Hit & Run skills competition will be for kids aged 7-14 and the winners will advance to the regional competition with a chance to attend the 2008 MLB All-Star Game should they advance to the sectionals. Crenshaw’s baseball team will be on hand to assist with the competition.
The Jr. Olympic Rapid Rally Nike Basketball tournament will be for kids aged 8-13 and the winners will also advance to a regional competition to continue playing for a chance to attend the Olympic Training Center in Colorado with all expenses paid.
All kids must bring their parents in order to compete and while they are playing, the parents can take part in the Wellness Solutions Seminar that will include free blood pressure checks and a walk around Crenshaw in addition to the tennis and belly dancing lessons.
With over 1,500 expected to attend, many will be taking this year’s theme of “Get Inspired. Get Healthy” to heart and do their part to ensure they and their families are living a healthy lifestyle.
