Free Clinic in Fairfield County Is Well Received
October 19, 2012
On Saturday, October 13th, the Fairfield County Platform Tennis League (FCPTL) hosted a free clinic and exhibition sponsored by the APTA. The event was held at the Woodway Country Club immediately following the FCPTL captain's breakfast. (The FCPTL traditionally hosts a breakfast meeting with the captains of all 84 teams on the weekend before league play begins.)
The clinic was designed as a pre-season thank you for all the hard work, time, and effort the captains put in throughout the year. An email was sent and 32 captains signed up—a great response from players in all seven divisions.
PPTA pros Juan Martinez-Arraya, Lennart Jonason, Marco Grangeiro, and Patricio Misitrano, worked on backhand volleys, technique, screen play, serves, returns, and first volleys with the large group. Photographer Steve Caccam, a FCPTL and APTA board member and PPTA pro, captured many special moments of the pro exhibition.
During the event, players had the opportunity to try out the new Wilson and Viking demo racquets and speak to Sarah Maynard, the Wilson sales rep, who provided info on the new 2013 paddles.
A great big thank you goes out to co-sponsors Viking Athletics and Wilson Sports for their generous support of the APTA-sponsored clinics and exhibitions.
