Atlanta Circle Cup 2017
The Georgia Tennis Foundation and the Joe Dorn First Serve programs celebrated 15th anniversary of the Atlanta Circle Cup event at the historic Washington Park Tennis Center on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 10am-1pm. The fun day of games offered a unique opportunity for a record breaking 170+ kids from the Washington Park neighborhood, Camp Best Friends, Agape, the Police Athletic League, Magee Park and several Atlanta Metro YMCAs to be introduced to tennis by some of teaching pros and volunteers from USTA Georgia, USTA Southern, Universal Tennis Academy, ALTA, Agape, AYTEF and Georgia YMCAs. Former professional player Jarmere Jenkins, collegiate tennis players - Parker Goldstein, Rahul Das and Josh Pinkney courtesy of Universal Tennis Academy/David Drew played in an exhibition that had kids smiling while enjoying a delicious lunch donated by Publix Super Markets Charities and the group wrapped up their unique tennis experience with a cool treat from Kona Ice Midtown.
