TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State men’s and women’s tennis programs will be doing their part to help the community this holiday season by hosting the Florida State Tennis Community Day Friday, November 20, where both squads will be giving free tennis lessons in exchange for a canned good. Fans are encouraged to participate from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center as all goods collected will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
“It’s always great to get together with junior players of all ages and levels from the community, especially when it is for a greater purpose than tennis itself,” FSU women’s head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “I hope that all the participants can bring a lot of canned foods in their tennis bags so we can help supply the Second Harvest Food Bank with as much food as possible for the upcoming holiday season. We all are so fortunate with the lives we have, and to have an opportunity to give back to a charity such as Great Harvest is one our responsibilities as a community.”
“The community is very important and we hope that all our fans can come out to play with our tennis program while helping the food bank,” FSU men’s head coach Dwayne Hultquist said.
