Kudos & Kindness: Young athletes benefit from SITS donation

Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation is extremely grateful for the generous grant from Soroptimist International of Tahoe Sierra.

We will use this money to expand our junior tennis program, which starts in May and runs through August. It is open to all first- through eighth-graders. The Soroptimist award will allow us to offer scholarships to youths who otherwise would not have been able to attend either the after school or summer programs. We also will be able to purchase rackets and other tennis equipment for youngsters to use.

Multiple studies have proved that participating in sports improves self-esteem and leads to better academic performance.

Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation is an all volunteer nonprofit that operates Zephyr Cove Tennis Club on Warrior Way off Highway 50 in Zephyr Cove through a multi-year contract with Douglas County.
