Avanti Sports @ Amy Yee Legacy Clinic

Avanti Sports was proud to be one of the sponsors of the Amy Yee Legacy Clinic! The clinic was held on four Saturdays in June-which was free for all the community kids. Overall, the clinic had a turnout of over 120 kids! The clinic was organized by Wil Look and Carl Berquist to honor tennis legend Amy Yee who, for years, conducted free tennis clinics for community kids in the 60s, 70s, and the 80s.
Special thanks to Rose Jones of Babolat, Phil Mintz of Dunlop, and Chris Brant of Head for the gifts distributed to the kids.

We’ll see you all next year!
