Well, one thing the kids always look forward to is at the end of a hard season playing local matches in the Jacksonville area is to go to sectionals. Sectionals is where we get to meet and play all the junior team tennis teams all over Florida! We traveled to Daytona Beach off LPGA Boulevard to meet at the USTA Florida Tennis Center and compete with our teams. I think the kids like staying in the hotels and hanging out together the most, but they really like to compete on the tennis court too. It's a weekend full of tennis and the kids can't seem to get enough of it! This fall season we took two teams to Daytona, our U14 intermediate and our U12 intermediate teams. They played hard and competed well. I have to say I saw some really good tennis and excellent sportsmanship throughout the entire facility during this stay and it made me so proud to be a part of the sport of tennis. Tennis is a game of etiquette and the students at St. Johns Tennis Academy showed that very well this weekend. Congratulations and we are so proud of you!
