The awe inspiring Sophie Gerson Tennis Tournament at Columbia’s Bakers Field in the Dick Savitt Tennis stadium. What a day June 16th was !
At the end of the program, the culminating event that Columbia University hosted was so exciting for the players. They had the opportunity to play matches against another school and use all the skills and rules they learned and apply them in a competitive environment. The tournament was very well run and the players felt so special. They got to meet the collegiate players and meet the Columbia coach. They were so inspired and at the end of the day left with medals, a feeling of accomplishment and a yearning to play more so they can one day play like the Columbia tennis players.
The students cannot wait for the spring so they can start training again to win the school championships at the culminating tennis tournament!
