The Liberty men's and women's tennis teams served as guest instructors at a tennis clinic hosted by the Lynchburg homeschool community on Monday and Tuesday.

The clinic, which was held at the Crosswhite Athletic Club (formerly the Sports Racket) in Lynchburg, attracted about 85 students, ranging in ages from 7-16, each day. This year marked the 15th year that Liberty tennis has participated in the event.

 "The clinic is a great opportunity for our team to give back to the community. I really enjoy playing tennis with the kids," said Flames men's tennis junior captain Diego Castano. "It reminds me of when I started to play myself and fell in love with the sport."

Liberty Flames student-athletes introduced the game of tennis to beginner to intermediate level players, providing teaching and tips to the students.

"It's a pleasure to have the opportunity to give back to our community," stated Liberty Head Women's Tennis Coach Jeff Maren. "The kids are so much fun to be around, and our student-athletes had a blast on the court with them! This is a great way to wrap up the fall season, as we were able to emphasize the importance of service to our players."
