The Marine Corps Base in Twentynine Palms, CA has tennis facilities open all year long, but they often go unused. The ASY was shown evidence of this after teaming up with the PNB Paribas Tennis coaches to provide a free tennis clinic open to Active Duty families. After talking to one husband and wife who attended the clinic, they said in the past they’d had no motivation to go on their own to practice or play. Even though they knew the courts were open, and the wife wanted her husband to teach her how to play. After finishing the clinics offered by the ASY for seven Saturdays on base, they completely loved all that it offered them. It gave them the little push they needed to really get them into practicing together, and have shared that they now play even during the week; giving them some wonderful quality time together, and helping them be more active as a couple too. The husband made sure to point out that, “I’m really glad my wife signed me up for this.” This has been a truly amazing opportunity for tennis players of any skill level come together and share the coach’s love of the game.
