LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming head tennis coach Kristen Hall was recently awarded a USTA/ITA Community Service Award for the Intermountain Section.
The USTA/ITA Community Service Award honors an ITA coach for significant contributions in developing community-based tennis programs through community centers, schools, parks, community tennis associations, inner city, suburban or rural programs.
This awards program, which began in 2003, was open to over 2,000 ITA head and assistant coaches at the NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College levels.
Several of the community activities that have been involved with the program include working with the after school program at the Laramie Rec Center and the local daycares in giving the children an opportunity to learn about and take tennis lessons, weekly clinics and lessons within the community, while helping organize a community tennis ladder for Laramie.
