BTC NEWS-Summer Camp with a Difference
The St. Lucia Tennis Association (SLTA) and United Through Sports Organization (UTS) partners with the South Castries Youth and Sports Council (SCYSC) as they stage their inaugural Tennis Summer Camp at the Jon Odlum Memorial Secondary School multipurpose court.
The Building Tennis Communities (BTC) Program launched by the St. Lucia Tennis Association in 2017 has been far reaching and effective as a start to get tennis into more communities on the island.
Currently the SLTA has partnered with Youth & Sports Councils and has had successful introductory tennis events. All events staged by the SLTA is hosted at the National Tennis Centre in Beasejour, this summer we take tennis into the community!
The Tennis Association has provided SCYSC organizer of the camp with coaches, equipment, and other tennis accessories needed to teach tennis at no cost to the SCYSC. UTS has also provided SCYC with two L2 coaches to assist at the camp.
We wish to commend this Youth Council as they are looking forward to continuing a full time tennis program for children in their communities. The Tennis Association also wishes to thank the United Through Sports Organization for continually supporting tennis development in St. Lucia.
