The Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association (BLTA) will be highlighting tennis development in The Bahamas over the upcoming weeks. We go to the North to Marsh Harbour, Abaco where the spotlight today is the Abaco Tennis Association. The Association is seeking to promote and develop tennis by focusing on the establishment of competitive, developmental, educational and recreational programs for everyone. In addition, its purpose is to promote health, character, high standards of fair play, sportsmanship and social responsibility.
The Abaco Tennis Association is under the direction of President Cameel McDonald. The Association is presently hosting a tennis clinic. The clinic started from November and runs to mid December and will break temporarily for the Christmas season.
These tennis clinics are free to kids ages five years and older and are held every Saturday from 2 pm to 4 pm at Forrest Heights Tennis Courts. Instructors include Cameel McDonald, Macquel McDonald. Vernon Russell, Chavonne Reid, Rory Young, Sweavon Smith, Leon Pinder and Roodatram Kawalram. The Program uses a rotational schedule for coaches.
President McDonald expounded on the Association’s mission, which is “to empower young minds to become the next generation of leaders and to aid in the development of life, personal educational and professional growth“!
The BLTA is pleased to see Tennis growing throughout The Bahamas. We are happy to have Mrs. McDonald along with the various volunteers advancing tennis in Abaco. The BLTA supports the development of Abaco’s junior tennis program
