Denise Murphy, Lake Forest High School’s Varsity Tennis Coach (and founder of the Play for Peace Event that we posted on last week) runs a SUPER fun Tennis Camp in Lake Forest that we want you all to know about. Denise is so awesome and not only wants kids to learn to play and love tennis but she also encourages them to give back. How cool is that?!
Here is the scoop from Denise…
Some of my fondest memories as a child were forged on the tennis court in the summertime, where, at an early age, I came to love the game of tennis. The intention of my camp is to simply share my love and appreciation of tennis, a sport for life, with your child.
The program will focus on stroke fundamentals, footwork and agility with a strong emphasis on court awareness and etiquette. In addition, match play will be incorporated every day in the afternoon session. While I hope to stir the competitive juices in your child, particular attention will be paid to individual improvement and increased self – esteem.
The goal of my camp is to inspire kids towards greatness ON and OFF the court. In 7 years, we have donated more than $20,500 to various charities. The amount of money donated is determined by the “points” earned by each camper during skills tests and competitions. The greater the effort, the bigger their donation!
THE KIDS ARE SO PROUD AND EXCITED ABOUT MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!!
What a wonderful way to learn about “giving back”
Again this year, proceeds will benefit The House of Peace Domestic Violence Shelter in Lake County
If you have been looking for the right opportunity to introduce your child to tennis, or just the right situation to further your child’s skill, love and appreciation… look no further!
