AFA Tennis Coaches to Conduct Clinic for Wounded Warriors
April 27, 2012
Kim Gidley and assistant coach Nick Dargene are scheduled to conduct a tennis training for members from Team Navy/Coast Guard and Team Army competing in the 2012 Warrior Games on Saturday, April 28 at the Monument Valley Park Tennis Courts, located at 170 W. Cache La Poudre in Colorado Springs.
Gidley and Dargene will assist the national wheelchair coaches and volunteers from the United States Tennis Association (USTA). Four tennis training stations will be set-up with various activities to introduce sailors, coast guardsmen and soldiers to the lifelong sport of tennis. As part of the White House Joining Forces Initiative, the USTA is spreading the word that with courts in virtually every community, tennis presents Wounded Warriors and their families with an opportunity to play tennis both competitively and socially no matter what level, ability, age, or socioeconomic situation.
The training will take place from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday. In case of inclement weather, the training will move to the Air Force Academy's indoor courts. For further information, please contact Robin Jones, USTA National Military Outreach Consultant, at 919-622-7277 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
