Gates volunteered Coach Clarence and Coach Maureen for nearly two weeks to practice tennis related skills alongside teaching etiquette. The students really enjoyed the activities and coaches and we are planning another session this coming fall. Gates Tennis Center offers camps and leagues. Please thank Gates if you play tennis there.
