After renovations transformed two inoperative tennis courts in Potlatch, Idaho, into a quality tennis facility, the Idaho tennis programs are running five clinics for youth and adults in the rural town north of Moscow.

“It is great to be involved with promoting recreation in the area,” Idaho Director of Tennis Jeff Beaman said. “Matthew Hacker did a great job with his Eagle Scout project turning two unusable tennis courts that were an eye sore, into a facility that the community can use and that look great. Many people were involved from fundraising to hands-on work on the courts.”

Beaman and head women’s tennis coach Myriam Sopel are putting on four kids clinics, which have already begun, and will host an adult clinic in early September featuring players from Idaho’s men’s and women’s teams.

"The kids are very receptive and it's nice to be able to communicate your knowledge and teach them the basics of tennis," Sopel said. "They are very enthusiastic and excited to learn."
