Looking to spread the game of tennis into the local community, the LMU men's tennis team held clinics at Playa Vista and Kentwood Elementary School on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
"The local community is very important for us to give back to and be present with," LMU head coach Tom Lloyd said. "We are surrounded by a fantastic neighborhood, and will continue to build strong relationships."
The Lions set up portable tennis nets at the locations, fed the students balls, taught them proper technique in holding the racquet and instructed them on how to rally the ball over the net.
"The enthusiasm and passion from the students at both elementary schools was infectious," associate head coach Rob Gurden said. "They seemed to really connect with our student athletes in a way that I've rarely seen in my years of coaching. We're hoping that some of them will get turned on to this great game the way that we have."
