On August 27, 2015, GLP and the USTA teamed up for the â€œReturning the Loveâ€ program where 50 GLP students met 2014 US Open Men’s Defending Champion, Marin Cilic of Croatia, and participated in a tennis clinic with USTA trainers during the pre-Open season at the USTA Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, NY. Students learned basic techniques like balance, form and timing. They also rallied with international tennis star Gigi Fernandez who was born in Puerto Rico.
Students were happy to learn that even tennis is an international sport where they can use multi-language skills!
