WTA Tour & Morgan Stanley Host Come Play Clinic for Harlem Junior Tennis & Education Program

While I’m not on site at this year’s US Open, I am still receiving media notices thanks to the USTA. Yesterday was one event I really regret missing but am happy to share some information and photos in case you missed it as well. Pictured above with the young players: (L-R) (L-R) Micky Lawler president, WTA Tour, WTA Tour players Jessica Pegula, Danielle Collins, Katrina Adams, Executive Director Harlem Junior Tennis & Education Program (HJTEP); WTA Tour player Alycia Parks, Judy Murray and Alice Milligan, Chief Marketing Officer, Morgan Stanley.

The WTA Tour and the Harlem Junior Tennis & Education Program co-hosted a “Come to Play” clinic with Judy Murray, sponsored by Morgan Stanley as part of the WTA’s 50th anniversary celebration on Aug 23 at Howard Bennet Park in Harlem (135th Street/5th Avenue).

Jessica Pegula

The day began with a coach’s clinic, hosted by Judy Murray — renowned instructor and mother of Andy Murray – for a group of 25+ HJTEP instructors and some of the programs’ senior students.  Murray taught the instructors some of her signature drills that will keep the HJTEP kids engaged while sharpening their skills.

Danielle Collins

Following a brief ceremony, during which Alice Milligan, Chief Marketing Office of Morgan Stanley presented HJTEP with a check for $25,000, Murray and the HJTEP instructors conducted a one-hour tennis clinic for 60+ HJTEP members.  As a special treat WTA Tour players Jessica Pegula, Danielle Collins and Alycia Parks joined the clinic – participating in both the drills and hit sessions with the kids.
