Charleston Schools hosting Superintendent's Cup to Grow Interscholastic Tennis

April 21, 2009 06:22 PM

In an effort to increase access to tennis for Charleston students,  the Charleston County School District will host the first annual Superintendent’s Cup on May 2nd at St. Andrews Parks and Playground. 

The daylong tennis tournament is open to all Charleston County teachers and school district staff, with the hopes that this event will inspire teachers and staff to take tennis back to share with their students in an expansion of an existing local program.

Promoting tennis in schools has been a high priority for School Superintendent Dr. Nancy McGinley for the past year.  As a USTA member and former college tennis player, McGinley sees tennis as a great way for students to grow physically, socially, and academically.

With help from The Charleston Tennis Initiative, a group of diverse community leaders, elementary schools throughout the district have launched tennis teams. McGinley hopes that the Superintendent’s Cup will be the perfect way to expand tennis teams to all Charleston schools.

Leading up to the Superintendent’s Cup on May 2nd, Charleston schools will be incorporating tennis activities during the school day. McGinley hopes that tennis will provide a lifelong healthy habit for the students of Charleston County.
