RAMONA–The community is invited to a Pro-Am tennis tournament and instructional clinic hosted by United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) elite tennis pro Mike Rogers at La Casa del Zorro Resort.
Juan Bautista de Anza Online Charter School students were selected to participate in the tennis clinic. The event is open to the public.
Organizers say the tennis event coincides with National School Choice Week 2016, the nation’s largest celebration of options in education.
“School Choice matters because it values an ideal education for everyone, and our school can allow them to feel comfortable knowing there is now a way to implement this ideal model. Our communities must value education to prosper and with school choice families, students and communities can receive an answer to their problems, prayers and concerns,” said David Reichner, athletic/marketing director at Juan Bautista de Anza.
An instructional tennis clinic will kickoff the day at 9 a.m. and feature Geoff Griffin, director of Morley Field Tennis Facility and the Balboa Tennis Club in San Diego. Mike Rogers, La Casa del Zorro’s USPTA elite tennis pro, will direct the clinic. At noon, the Pro-Am tournament will begin featuring four amateurs and four tennis professionals playing four rounds in a round robin format.
La Casa del Zorro Resort is located at 3845 Yaqui Pass Road, Borrego Springs.
