Plantation to Host Summer Military Tennis Camp
The annual Summer Military Tennis Camp, presented by the City of Plantation and the Broward County Veteran’s Council, will be held for five sessions this summer from June 12-Aug. 18 at the Frank Veltri Tennis Center in Plantation, Fla.
The camps serve children age 6-14 of active or deployed U.S. Armed Forces personnel living in Broward County to the free camp at Plantation Central Park and the tennis center. Tennis racquets are provided, and children are asked to bring a bag lunch and swim suit.
The Frank Veltri Tennis Center, the Plantation Community Tennis Corporation and the Broward County Veteran’s Council have been working together since Summer 2010 to provide free tennis camp scholarships to children with a parent or parents on active duty or who are currently deployed and reside in Broward County.
The five sessions fill up quickly, so early registration is encouraged.
