     The Alex O’Brien Tennis Foundation is proud of its partnership with Kids Inc. Last spring, 462 kids and 50 adult volunteers came together at Amarillo National Tennis Center over a span of four Saturdays to enjoy the game of tennis. Kids’ ages ranged from six years old to thirteen year old, and each age group played with age-appropriate balls, rackets, and drills as outlined by the USTA.

    The event was such a success that it led the AOBTF, AATA, and Kids Inc. to explore the possibility of furthering their partnerships and thus creating more opportunities for the youth in our community to have access to tennis. Currently, the partnership has led to Kids Inc. adding tennis to their sports’ curriculum and hiring Rene’e Stovall as their tennis coordinator. The AOBTF is proud to be a financial sponsor of this position. Also, Kids Inc. and AOBTF will be offering tennis again this April. There are several other tennis opportunities on the horizon with this partnership, and there will be more to come. However, one thing is for sure; this is a partnership that is here to stay.
