Last month, a TIF-sponsored tennis program was held at the Immokalee Community Park for third and fourth graders. Jim and Sulbey Hold — who first introduced the idea to create a TIF funded tennis program — volunteered their time and equipment, spending five weeks with the students teaching them the fundamentals of the sport. It wasn’t all exercise and learning, though. After an hour and a half of tennis practice each day, students were treated to 30 minutes of ice cream.
According to TIF staffer Patricia Nunez, this year’s event was a “complete success” and student’s should be on the look out for next year’s tennis program, which begins in January.
