On Saturday, Oct. 29, the George Washington men's tennis team volunteered at the 17th Annual Heart to Heart Tennis Experience hosted by the Southeast Tennis and Learning Center. The event kicked off at 8 a.m. and concluded at 3 p.m.
The Heart to Heart Tennis Experience is the brainchild of the Recreational Wish List Committee's desire to fill the D.C. community's need for support and structure for those wanting to play tennis. The event got its name because it encourages adults to bring their "hearts" to the children of the community.
This year, Heart to Heart welcomed over 50 participants with ages ranging from eight to adult.
The event brings together junior tennis clubs from across DC, Maryland, and Virginia to showcase not only their abilities, but also their love for tennis. The event pairs junior players and adults to compete in doubles matches. The event also features a silent auction, tennis clinics, and group warm-ups. Local celebrities, including media personalities, politicians and community leaders, also participate and play.
The Colonials have a strong connection with the Southeast Tennis and Learning Center, utilizing the facility to host indoor matches as well as an indoor practice site. The team volunteered at the Heart to Heart events for the second consecutive year.
"We enjoy helping out at the Southeast Tennis and Learning Center because they give us so much support throughout the year," said junior Chris Reynolds. "Helping out at this event is the least we could do for them."
