What Do the Children Say?

"I would like to be a tennis player because it improves my concentration, because I would like to travel the world and because it is fun. I would like to improve my serve. My favorite tennis player is Pete Sampras."

1999 Tennis Camp!!

For the fourth consecutive year, the Anguilla Tennis Academy is operating a free summer tennis camp. This summer 183 children have enrolled and the quality of play is improving all the time.

The camp was created by young Anguillian students who volunteered their time and energy while home for the summer from attending college in the USA: Mitchelle Lake (bio) while he was at Gardener-Webb University (gardner-webb.edu) in Boiling Springs, NC, and Damien Hughes (bio) at Morehouse College (www.morehouse.edu) in Atlanta, Georgia.

During the week of July 19, a team of four coaches arrived from the United States for special training, to be held on the courts at Carimar Beach Club and Malliouhana Hotel.

Millenium Dream

The Anguilla Tennis Academy has set as a long-term goal the creation of a professional tennis facility in Anguilla. The Academy would like to build on the momentum that has been created over the last four years, developing a permanent tennis programme in Anguilla. From this base, Anguilla will be able to host regional competitions, create more home-grown tennis pros for the tourism industry, and even someday perhaps host a Seniors Pro tournament in Anguilla.
