For the seventh consecutive year, young hopefuls from across the tri-state area will be out in force at SPORTIME Syosset, the John McEnroe Tennis Academy’s (JMTA) Long Island location, on Saturday June 17, as SPORTIME and JMTA coaches seek to discover untapped tennis talent.
The goal of the Tryout is to award full or partial scholarships to SPORTIME and JMTA programs at SPORTIME Syosset, starting in fall 2017. Open only to players with tennis experience, ages 6-16, the Tryout will take place on Saturday, June 17 from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM, with check-in at 9:00 AM. Participants will be evaluated by a Selection Committee, consisting of SPORTIME/JMTA directors, coaches and leaders, including Lawrence Kleger, JMTA Co-Director, and Patrick McEnroe, who recently joined JMTA as Lawrence’s Co-Director. The Tryout will include tennis and point/match play.
“The tryout has become a ‘can’t-miss’ event for aspiring young tennis players and athletes at various skill levels,” said JMTA Co-Director Lawrence Kleger. “It’s part of our mission to make tennis available to any talented player, regardless of financial means. We’re looking forward to a great day and an opportunity to meet new talented athletes.”
Scholarship winners will be notified at a later date.
