3rd Annual Holiday Junior Tennis Clinic & Celebration Saturday, November 30th at Harvard Recreation Center

 The 3rd Annual Holiday Kids Tennis Day, benefiting the Pete Brown Scholarship Fund and the Harvard Tennis Club will provided a free tennis clinic which includes:  tennis lessons, tennis racquets, shoes, clothes, lunch and Christmas gifts for community youth at the Jackie Tatum/Harvard Recreation Park’s tennis courts on Saturday, November 30th, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The clinic will be for all junior players between the ages of 5 and 18 years old, with special surprises for those who cannot afford tennis lessons, tennis racquets and tennis outfits and shoes.   The event co-hosts for the junior tennis clinic and holiday celebration will include the Pete Brown Scholarship Fund organization (PBSF), the Star Family and Coach Mary Pat Faley,  2010 Southern California USPTA Pro of the Year.

The day will begin with the children receiving tennis giveaways, including racquets, shoes and clothes.   The children will then be put into groups where volunteer coaches will run tennis drills to enhance their skills and love of tennis.  The children and parents will also be served a hearty, healthy lunch.  The day will conclude with each child competing for Christmas gift bags filled with toys and holiday goodies.

 The Pete Brown Scholarship Fund is dedicated to preserving the hopes and dreams of young tennis players who have excelled in the game of competitive tennis and keeping longtime Coach & Community Leader–Pete Brown’s 40 year tennis legacy alive in our community.  The fund provides on-going support for junior players who need help paying for tennis lessons and tournament fees.  For more information, please go to the Pete Brown Scholarship Fund website  or email us at
