Harlem Tennis Club to Celebrate David Dinkins' 90th Birthday

For eight consecutive Saturdays, from July 1 through August 19, 2017, children will be given the opportunity to improve their tennis game and reading skills through Sam Penceal and the volunteers of the David Dinkins Tennis Club (DDTC).
The sessions will be held at the Jungle Tennis Courts in Harlem, and the birthday celebration for the former mayor will take place on July 1.
DDTC was founded in honor of the contributions New York’s first and only Black mayor made to Harlem and the tennis world. DDTC members, led by Mr. Penceal, are all residents of the Harlem community and have extensive experience as teachers, school administrators, and professional tennis coaches.
The tennis courts are hallowed ground and served as practice courts for some of the most famous black tennis players, including Althea Gibson, Arthur Ashe and James Blake.
Call 917-301-9303 to register.
