Kenny Huffman Tennis Classic
Hi Tennis Fans,
I know everyone is looking forward to a great tennis season. Spring will be here before you know it. It is not too late to get into good physical shape. Because tennis is an individual sport, you have to have extraordinary fitness and endurance. Always aim to be the most physically fit player on the court.
We are holding our first 2018 Kenny Huffman Tennis Classic meeting on February 20 at the YMCA. Many topics will be discussed in preparation for our tournament. The KHTC is a member of the ATS and the MTC. Each circuit has 8 to 10 tournaments. It is a spring and summer that will be full of tennis and fun. Our tournament this year will be held on July 27-
The ATS (Appalachian Tennis Series) has tournaments in about ten counties in Kentucky: Pike, Floyd, Perry, Boyd, Rowan, Morgan, Knott, Letcher, and Lawrence. We would love to have more members. To join the circuit, go to www.atstennis.net and download an application form -
The KHTC will be giving out a couple of scholarships this year. The recipient must be a high school graduating senior; a U.S. citizen; have a 'B' or better GPA; be a resident in the 14th, 15th, or 16th region; and have won a division of the tournament between his or her freshman and senior years. If you are interested for next year, be sure to let one of our committee members know. The scholarship awards will be given out at the Senior Awards Ceremony.
Our tournament would love to see more junior players participate. If you are on a high school tennis team, be sure and sign up to play in the KHTC. You can go to our website, www.kenhuffclas.org , and download a registration form. Or you can contact anyone on the committee to give you one.
REMEMBER THIS: "DON'T RUIN A GOOD DAY ABOUT A BAD YESTERDAY. LET IT GO!"
