The Anguilla Tennis Club
For 21 years The Anguilla Tennis Club on the small island that is its namesake has been making tennis affordable for the islands’ children. Over this time period 4,000 kids have been taught the game of tennis and some have gone on to play the game at higher levels. A great accomplishment for this island which is only 35 square miles and lays east of Puerto Rico and The Virgin Islands in the Lesser Antilles of the Caribbean.
Metro News Vancouver has the story.
Beneath the impossibly blue skies of the Caribbean paradise of Anguilla, I sat in the shade of a palm tree, watching pairs of teenagers playing tennis on rows of immaculate courts. These weren’t the offspring of well-to-do vacationers.
