“UTA’s Tennis Clinic is one of our greatest and most well-liked after
school enrichment offerings and is valued by our students, parents and
staff alike for the quality programming…In addition to teaching our
scholars the origin and history of the game, drills, and techniques, the
coaches also teach and demonstrate good sportsmanship and other important
life lessons.” – Rosalyn Merrick of Ron Clark Academy
