He came. He saw. He inspired. He thrilled.
International Tennis Hall of Fame coach Nick Bollettieri charmed all who shared court time with him at a series of clinics last week at Vineyard Youth Tennis (VYT).
Executive director Scott Smith, who previously worked for Mr. Bollettieri at the famous Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Bradenton, Florida, planned the maestro’s visit, which included on-court instruction time. The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) boys and girls tennis teams, the VYT Future Stars, and the VYT Tournament team all had a session with Mr. Bollettieri. The second day was reserved for adults.
“It couldn’t have gone better,” Mr. Smith told The Times. “The kids loved it, the parents loved it, and I couldn’t have been happier.”
