Hundreds of kids took over the tennis courts in Trenton on Tuesday for an event that seems to grow in volume each year.
The NJTL of Trenton hosted its sixth annual Trenton Short Court Championships on Tuesday at the Junior Champion Tennis Center at Cadwalader Park, bringing together more than 200 kids from more than 20 local elementary and middle schools.
The 2014 recipient of the USTA Middle States William A. Hills Section NJTL Chapter Award, NJTL of Trenton focuses on life skills and education, using tennis as a hook to get kids interested and engaged. The organization offers after-school and school-day programming, academic enrichment, employment opportunities as teaching staff, college preparation, scholarships and partnerships with local clubs.
Last year, NJTL of Trenton achieved one of its greatest feats: the grand opening and dedication of the Daniel L. Haggerty Jr. Pavilion at the Junior Champions Tennis Center.
