Tennis teams set to host fundraiser Saturday



Nov. 27, 2012

BEAUMONT – The Lamar men’s and women’s tennis teams will host a fundraiser on Saturday as the programs look to finance further facility upgrades to the Thompson Family Tennis Center.

The day’s activities will start with a drill session, set to run from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The workshop will feature athletes from both teams, and they will guide participants through a series of drills designed to sharpen one’s skills.

Following the drills, there will be a lunch provided from 11:30 to noon, and Jesse Cooper will host a presentation focusing on the tactics and strategy of tennis.

Cardinals Competition Session will run from 1:00 p.m. to 4 p.m., and participants will be paired with members of the men’s and women’s tennis teams for match play.

The cost to participate in the drill session is $50 for adults and $25 for juniors. To play in the Cardinals Competition session as well the drills, it will cost $500. All donations are appreciated and will go towards resurfacing the tennis courts.
