The Port Washington boys’ tennis team brought back its Serve to Serve charity tennis program, as players gave a clinic to elementary school students who otherwise may not have a chance to play tennis.

The program was created by former Port Washington player Justin Suzzan back in 2017, and on Saturday, 40 students showed up to learn tennis from the Vikings team.

“Most of them held a racquet for the first time today and walked off the court with a big smile asking, ‘when is the next session? We can’t wait!’,” said Port Washington head coach Shane Helfner. “It’s events like these that put our program on top, and makes me a very proud coach. A special shout out to our current players Ezra Loewy and Dan Greilsheimer for helping to organize the event and lead the way!

Thanks to USTA Long Island for helping to lend the equipment that we need to make this successful.”
