Inaugural ‘Aim to Ace’ Day
Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast hosted their inaugural ‘Aim to Ace’ Day presented by Drs. Vinod and Tarlika Thakkar Foundation this past Saturday, October 18, 2014 to teach an eager group of kids in their program how to be an ace on the courts, while aiming to be an ace at life!
A group of almost 20 kids attended the event at the Thakkar Tennis Center at the Country Club of Sebring where they had the opportunity to learn the basics of the game of tennis from members of the Highlands County Tennis Association and the Sebring High School Tennis Team. The kids enjoyed a pizza lunch after their morning of introductory sessions and each of them left with the surprise of a brand new tennis racquet to continue practicing.
The event was designed to be a memorable and fun first experience for the kids in the program to learn a sport they may not have otherwise had the chance and would not have been possible without the support of Drs. Vinod and Tarlika Thakkar! A special thank you to the Highlands County Tennis Association and the Sebring High School Tennis Team for taking the time to share their knowledge and engage these budding amateurs in such a unique experience.
