Curso de Tenis

We had an awesome week at the ranch with our very first tennis camp. It was a great experience for our staff to work alongside a professional tennis teacher from the United States. He worked with the kids from the colonias and with our staff to teach us how to teach tennis so that we can offer tennis at the ranch as another camp activity. It was a joy to watch the kids as the vast majority of them had never held a tennis racquet before in their life. We are working to doing additional week long camps like this in the summer which will focus on the various aspects of the ranch. Some ideas are horse camp, sports camp, adventure camp, and English camp. Here are some pictures of the kids enjoying their first experience with tennis.

We used the neighboring ranch's multipurpose slab. It hadn't been used in at least 5 years...we can't wait to build one of our own on the ranch.
