WITT (Women In Tennis Together) sponsored by the USTA was an inspirational event that took place at The Boss Family Tennis Center at The Murray Family Athletic Complex at Faxon Farm. This event was exclusively for young women in grades 9-12 who play tennis in Rhode Island and New England. All were invited to attend, play doubles with peers and get positive feedback from role model coaches.
The athletes were inspired and informed at the off court enrichment session which featured strong, successful female role models who shared their unique insights on tennis and sports career opportunities in college and beyond; key elements in building a successful future on and off the court.
