USPTA Pro to Intro Tennis to National City Kids
SAN DIEGO — A group of San Diego Hispanic tennis professionals, headed by Angel Lopez, who is a United States Professional Tennis Association Master Professional and director of tennis at the San Diego Tennis and Racquet Club and the Angel Lopez Tennis Academy, will introduce tennis to approximately 300 children during a school assembly at Las Palmas Elementary School in National City, Calif.
The assembly is scheduled from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 22, at the school, which is located at 1900 E. 18th St.
“We hope to expose the sport of tennis to more kids in the South Bay,” said Lopez, who serves on national diversity committees for the United States Tennis Association and the USPTA.
“This will be an excellent opportunity for these children in predominantly Hispanic communities to learn how fun it is to play tennis and hopefully they will take part in afterschool tennis programs offered by Youth Tennis San Diego,” Lopez said.
Other San Diego-area tennis professionals who will participate in the school assembly include USPTA members Marco Zuniga, Antonio Ramos, George Espinosa and Juan Garcia, along with Alberto Ramos and two-time Australian Open quarterfinalist, Angelica Gavaldon.
