Clinician Shawna Macfarlane, BNCTA President and head Tennis Professional at Niagara Falls Country Club, directed volunteers, students, teachers, and administrators in Alden, Holland and Colonial Village to take part in various games and skill competitions. The event was highlighted by the "Tennis Sandwich" relay races, and the impressive array of skills showcased by the faculty and staff. alden schools assembly 4/26

The BNCTA held its third annual Schools Program at the Colonial Village School this year. Assemblies were held that served as a kickoff to the Physical Education unit. Shawna Macfarlane went to the school to work with the students. She was joined by BNCTA volunteers from around the community. The students were introduced to tennis, in many cases, for the first time. BNCTA will maintain its relationship with this school by providing information about USA Tennis Programs in the area and supporting the PE staff as they continue to offer tennis as part of the curriculum each year.
