Coach Felix and his family lost their apartment, most of their belongings and their four dogs in a fire a few weeks ago.
On Friday, October 25, the Fundraiser for Felix was held by the YTC coaches at the club. The festive night's theme was an 80's Halloween party. While some dressed and some did not, the atmosphere was joyful while still remembering why we were all there. YTC staff and Coaches Richard, Rene, Ed, Martin, Michael, Farhad, Vito, Alexa, and Tendai were in the house to help their fellow coach. Coach Tendai welcomed everyone. Coach Alexa, YTC's Camp Director, ran the the evenings program.
Splitting up the group into two teams to compete for the night. Express, Champion of the Court, and Beat the Pro were some of the highlighted games played. Players were only allowed to use Orange and Green balls only because they help everyone enjoy the game most by helping to spur more rallies and contacts on the ball.
At the end of the night, players were given the opportunity to hit YTC's famous Monster-Mid. At the closing ceremonies, our awards for Most Improved, Sportsmanship and Camper of the Night were given out. Congratulations to all of the winners! The awards are always well deserved!
Thank you to everyone that attended that evening along with all those that donated monetarily or with actual items. As Coach Tendai said in the welcoming "it is one of the reasons why I love working here when I see so many from ownership to red ballers supporting Coach Felix. It was tennis that brought us all together."
