USTA SC visits the Pecan Festival

Pecan Festival
During a festival where pecans are roasted, toasted, and sugared, USTA South Carolina offered a great way to burn the calories from all the festival food.  Over 200 kids at the Pecan Festival participated on court with volunteers from Francis Marion University varsity tennis teams and the Florence Tennis Association.  Volunteers took the time to instruct the children on several key drills, working on footwork and balancing, before giving the children a shot at rallying over the net.  
There will be follow up events for both children and adults.  Bring your children to join Brian Parkkonen at the Dr. Eddie Floyd Tennis Center on November 17th from 1:00 - 3:00pm for a FREE kids play day. 
For more information, you may contact Brian by phone, (843) 665-3106, or e-mail,  For adults, the Polar Bear Tournament is coming up on November 17th at 8:30am at the Dr. Eddie Floyd Tennis Center where the only entry fee is an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots.
