Match Point Impact offered a developmental camp for Diverse backgrounds on behalf of USTA Florida. 32 players from the ages of 12-18 years old attended working on developing their SMARTS (Seeing, Movement, Adjusting, Rotation, Transfer, and Swing) skills while competing against one another.
USTA Player Coordinator Andy Gladstone and his daughter Mira Gladstone gave an excellent presentation on how to apply and play tennis in college.
Players were also treated to some of the best coaches from around South Florida including Robert Gomez Director of the Biltmore Hotel and Salvadore Park Tennis Center, Jose Rincon (formerly worked with Mary Pierce at the Australian Open), Brian Schliefer (18 time Florida State High School Championship Coach) David Sal (Director of Seasons) Jordan Johnson (Assistant Coach at American Heritage) Guil Frias who was formerly ranked top 10 in Brazil and his brother Phillipe Frias who was ranked #1 in Brazil and is a hitting partner for Serena Williams, Brent Wellman who is the junior director at the Delray Tennis Center.
Scott Williams (Match Point Impact) who directed the camp commented ‘The Diversity Tennis Camps are a wonderful way for students from around the State of Florida to come together, learn, train, and compete with one another in a one day event.”
