This year at the Coleman Vision Tennis Championships, Enrique Aguilar, the Wheelchair “Chairperson” for USTA NNMTA, worked with the tournament to set up a wheelchair clinic and a Wheelchair Exhibition. The Wheelchair Exhibition was held between the Singles and Doubles Finals at Tanoan Country Club on Sunday, September 27th. What a fun and educational event for all!! During the tournament week, over 400 young people had an opportunity to participate in the clinics and special events, act as ball kids and assist with the events as part of their community service for the New Mexico Youth Tennis Foundation.
The tournament is conducted by the New Mexico Youth Tennis Foundation, and raised close to $30,000 to support its mission of providing education and opportunity to NM youth through tennis.
