“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” ~ Anthony Robbins.
The 12th Annual Upper Gwynedd Open Teen Tennis Tournament became more than just about tennis and competing, it became about giving back and helping others. In a chance to showcase the skills they have been developing since the beginning of camp in June, the 32 teens that participated in the tournament not only rallied to win, but rallied for a cause. In an unprecedented move, the teens that participated in the tournament decided to play for food donations for the local food kitchen, “Mana on Main.
After the tournament, an award ceremony was held for each level of play. Trophies, medal and flowers adorned the table dressed in a flag tablecloth. Parents and friends gathered and cheered for each of the players.
The food donation was taken to Manna on Main with a paper with all the participating player’s names on it.
