Flushing, N.Y. - This past Saturday, over 20 participants braved the Arctic weather to participate in the USTA 10 and Under Workshop at the Queens College Tennis Center. The event, hosted by tennis pro and QC men's head coach, Wayne Martin, took place at the newly renovated indoor facility on the Queens College campus in Flushing.
The purpose of the instructional event was to educate coaches, parents and other tennis instructors on the best way to work with young children to foster a love of tennis.
The event featured Coach Martin and also had teaching tips from USTA clinician, Chuck Russell.
Martin reflected on the event: "The event was a success thanks to participant interest and program content." He went on, "I look forward to working with the USTA on future tennis endeavors on behalf of Queens College."
The Queens College men's tennis team, led by Coach Martin, opens its 2013 home campaign on Saturday, March 9, when they host local rival Adelphi at noon.
