The Highland Park Tennis Club, with help from Envision Blind Sports, hosted a blind and vision impaired tennis clinic on Saturday afternoon.
Catering to each participant’s ability, volunteers from the tennis club and Slippery Rock University’s women’s tennis team gave hands-on instruction free of charge.
Jessica Kovacs of Plum watched from the bleachers as her son, Thomas, 9, was given specialized lessons.
She says Thomas gets a great deal out of events like this and will hold onto the memories for years.
In addition, she added it’s good for the average person looking on “to see a kid roll up with a (guiding) cane, and go do stuff like this.”
