Junior Tennis Players Take Part in Mark Knowles Celebrity Tennis Invitational

December 1st, 2009

The Bahamas Weekly is reporting that junior tennis players will travel from Out Islands to “Hit with the Pros” at the Mark Knowles Celebrity Tennis Invitational on Saturday, December 5 at the National Tennis Centre, Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre in Nassau.

This is the first year that the organizers of the Mark Knowles Celebrity Tennis Invitational have introduced an interactive experience for junior tennis players and several of the Bahamas’ promising junior players will be hitting a few tennis balls with the Pros immediately following the exhibition.

“Hit with the Pros” will give the juniors a taste of sharing the tennis court with some legends of the game.

The Bahamas Weekly article reports that Mark Knowles “thinks it is extremely important to encourage junior players and to let them see close up the techniques that are common to all the best players in the world.”

As a young child, Knowles was fortunate to be able to see Bjorn Borg, Vitas Geruliatis, Fred Stolle and Rod Laver and many others when they played in tournaments held at the Nassau Beach Hotel. Knowles said that this certainly inspired him to try and emulate them.

The article also reports that Andy Roddick and Mark Knowles’ recent doubles partner from Wimbledon, Anna-Lena Groenefeld are confirmed to be in attendance.
