Since 2016, we have worked with the East St. Louis School District to support tennis teams. The Lady Flyerettes now field a team and work hard to learn the game and compete in a very tough tennis conference.
Our efforts include instruction, equipment and general support. During the winter months, the young ladies receive indoor instruction at nearby Kings Point Racket Club in Belleville, Illinois. The first home match took place in the fall of 2018 between The Lady Flyerettes from East St. Louis and Metro East Lutheran High School from Edwardsville.
