"Fun for Cure tennis lived up to its name: it was lots of fun for my daughter. The organizers did so many things right -- from setting goals before every session, to providing healthy snacks, to enlisting buddies who enhanced the social experience. As a tennis player myself, I am thrilled to see my daughter's newly found enthusiasm for the sport."
-Ann Horowitz, Westchester County, NY
"I looked forward to tennis every Friday. My favorite part was when I met Adelise, who was a buddy. I got better at tennis by practicing my forehand. We played games and there were prizes. I liked the snacks that Florence and Adelise brought. "
- Carly, Westchester County, NY
"This was the first experience at tennis for my 11yr old ASD son and it was terrific. Practicing eye/hand coordination and timing; tennis was a perfect exercise for him. Thank you."
