Philadelphia Freedoms Pop-Up Tennis Tour Holds Clinic With Bridesburg Boys and Girls Club
On May 25th, the Philadelphia Freedoms Pop-Up Tennis Tour presented by UnitedHealthcare, in partnership with the Down the Line and Beyond Foundation, held its first clinic of the summer for 75 children at the Boys and Girls Club of Bridesburg.
The children were introduced to tennis for the first time, where they were explained a brief history of World TeamTennis and the benefits they can achieve from the sport. The children then got a chance to play some tennis with the coaches from Down the Line, as well as meet and take some pictures with the Philadelphia Freedoms’ mascot, Nettie King.
You can catch the Freedoms at the Hagan Arena at Saint Joseph’s University this summer. The Freedoms play July 17 – 29. Fans can watch major stars like Andy Roddick, Sloane Stephens and Venus Williams play.
