EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – The SIUE women's tennis team took advantage of a weekend off of competition last Thursday to volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club in Bethalto, Illinois.
The team provided a tennis clinic for the children in attendance, ranging from 6-10 years old. They provided balls and junior sized racquets while the kids came with energy.
"This was a great opportunity for our team to reach out to the local area," said Head Coach Nick Mueller. "Many of these kids were exposed to tennis for the first time, which was great. Our student-athletes were able to teach these kids a little bit about the sport that they love. We had good weather for the event, and the kids had a great time."
SIUE women's tennis returns to action Oct. 10 at the SIU Carbondale Tournament.
