South Carolina tennis teams help communities recover from flood

Gradually they appeared on social media, photos of tennis players armed not with racquets but with items synonymous with the South Carolina flood relief effort: donated supplies at an American Red Cross shelter and damaged carpet from a home in the Lake Katherine area of Columbia.

USC men’s tennis staff members, members of the USC women’s tennis team and the River Bluff High School girls tennis team were like hundreds of others earlier this week: They felt the need to help those affected by the flood, and they did.

The men’s tennis staff members and USC women’s tennis team helped people in the Lake Katherine area. The River Bluff girls team gave their time at Seven Oaks Park, which has been a Red Cross shelter all this week.

“Community is stepping up huge for those that lost so much,” USC men’s tennis head coach Josh Goffi wrote on Twitter. “Wish we could do more.”

Inspired by their work, we’ve shared their social media posts below. Please let us know where you and your tennis friends will be helping out this weekend in the comments section on Facebook.
