Washington, DC Junior Tennis Player to Host Fundraiser for “Game On” Outreach Program on May 24th

13-year-old Pasquale Procaccino looking to make a difference

(May 22, 2013) A standout player at the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, MD, 13-year-old Pasquale Procaccino is looking to make a difference in the tennis community. As he likes to say, “playing tennis, hitting the ball, sharing with others is lots of fun and is great for helping focus on all parts of life.”

And one of Pasquale’s goals is to share that fun with kids of all ages and backgrounds. So when – as part of the Junior Tennis Champions Center outreach program called “Game On” – he found himself teaching his peers tennis on courts that were cracked, full of weeds and covered with trash, he decided to act.

Pasquale has organized a fundraiser on Friday evening, May 24th, 2013 at the Royal Restaurant in Old Town Alexandria (734 N St. Asaph St, Alexandria, VA 22314 (703) 548-1616) to help fund expanding the “Game On” program to more locations in the greater Washington, DC area, and then eventually to repair and resurface those courts that first motivated him to act.

The owners of the restaurant said they will contribute a portion of dinner sales from other diners that evening not related to the fundraiser to help the cause.

“It seemed like such a good experience for them,” Pasquale said of his time with his peers. “If they could plan on nicer courts, enjoy nicer equipment, they could enjoy it much more.”

The Junior Tennis Champions Center inspires kids to become champions on and off the court with the “Game On” outreach program, which teaches tennis to inner city children ages 5 – 12. Tennis is more than just life itself, it is life. The discipline, commitment, focus, and desire we need to become successful in life mirrors the skills you must have to become a successful on the courts.

The JTTC is located at the Tennis Center at College Park, Md., a USTA Regional Training Center. It is also the home of the University of Maryland tennis teams. The award-winning facility is recognized as one of the most comprehensive tennis venues in the United States.

Pasquale has been training at the TCCP in the Champs program after school for 3 years and regularly competes in Mid-Atlantic junior tournaments.  He attends Burgundy Farm Country Day School in Alexandria and will graduate from the 8th grade this spring.  He will attend TCCP full time next year and plans to enter T.C. Williams High School in the fall of 2014.  In addition to his strong commitment to tennis, Pasquale is an avid piano player, participating in festivals and competitions several times a year.

    of the top companies like Bluehost, Host – Gator etc. Host – Gator is one of the few on the market that employs
    a workers of knowledgeable customer service pros which might be
    keen to take calls or IM chat transcripts any time of
    the day or evening-perfect for the online professional who should work another job during the day to get his enterprise
    off the ground. Merchant hosting is for webmasters who want to start their own profitable webhost.
