The 2011 Tenacity Summer Tennis & Reading Program hosted its first-ever Girls Got Game workshop series. This workshop series, designed for Tenacity's female participants, featured tennis instruction and games designed to build confidence and team dynamics.
Thirty girls met once a week along with select staff for a two-hour workshop that focused on playing doubles, on-the-court communication and wellness activities.
The all-female environment gave Tenacity's girls the space and comfort to excel mentally and physically on the courts. Tenacity's female staffers took advantage of the opportunity to serve as positive role models and fostered meaningful relationships with girls of all ability levels.
Tenacity's staff is excited about growing this initiative into a more integral part of the summer program in the years to come.
