Columbia University Tennis Center – Tennis Development Program
Categories: Sports, Education
The Columbia University Tennis Center has been conducting this program for about 25 years. The junior program is held in three different public courts, and approximately 400 kids are given instruction during the summer. Very experienced directors are hired for each site who in turn hire tennis instructors in order to maintain the high level of instruction. Arvelia Myers, who has been the main catalyst of the program for over 20 years, is one of the directors. She ensures that the program grows and that all surrounding communities are aware of the program.
