Happy New Year from Fort Myers Tennis!
Wow, what a year it has been for this little business we started back in March of 2018 with just two players - shout out to Hailey & Mason (pictured below)! We have grown from that first Saturday lesson, where no one could hold a tennis racket properly, more or less hit a winning overhead during match play, to the program we have today with more than 30 players, taking lessons weekly. Each of these special families has entrusted us to teach their children the wonderful and enduring game of tennis, and we couldn't be more excited to continue watching these awesome kiddos keep on improving in 2019!
While we are incredibly thankful for what we have been able to achieve in 2018, we are really only just getting started. As we look forward to 2019, our goals are big! Our theme for 2019 is Leaning In & Getting to Know our Community.
To tackle these big goals we have big plans!
1. We will be hosting free Community Events in order to get to know our neighbors and enable us to put tennis rackets into the hands of even more local kids.
3. We will be graduating LOTS of not-so-little-anymore 8-11 year old's into a brand new Juniors Program that we are currently developing hand in hand with the excellent coaches of the Fort Myers Racquet Club.
4. Lastly but certainly not least, Clint and I will be establishing a non-profit with the mission of providing college scholarships to local students in need, ensuring more kids in our community will be able to chase their dreams, whatever they may be.
While looking forward is exciting and invigorating, it's sometimes just as important to reflect on where you have already been. So, with that in mind, here are a few of our favorite images from 2018.
So, CHEERS tennis fam,thank you for an amazing year of learning & growing, and as always, we will see you on the courts!
