Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Twenty-six male beginning tennis players received a free morning of clinics, demonstrations, prizes and give-ways, and lunch during the USTA F.L. (Fun League) Tennis Blast, held recently, at the tennis facility located at Coral Reef Park in the Village of Palmetto Bay, Fla.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â "The morning started out with a 30-minute clinic put on by Babolat representative Richard Mennig and Steve Hanssen, our men's league coordinator," said USTA Florida Tennis Program Coordinator for the Miami area Cathy Nordlund. "They tried out the different Babolat racquets and Richard explained the importance of understanding the basic trade-offs between power and control in relation to string tension. All this was very informative to the beginner players."Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Players were assigned a court and played some friendly round-robin tennis, rotating every 20 minutes to play and meet different people. The group had lunch at the Park Cafe, where they learned more about USTA League opportunities and programs for beginner players. Participants received goodies and gear, including t-shirts, and two Babolat tennis bags were raffled.
