Murphy Jensen Clinic II

April 28, 2013 | By

On Saturday, April 27, 2013, ACTA partnered with the Arlington Y Tennis & Squash Center to bring their members a free exclusive tennis clinic with 1993 French Open Doubles Champion and head coach of the Washington Kastles tennis organization (32-game win streak), Murphy Jensen! The evening started as Jensen expressed his love for the game of tennis and noted that the Kastles are approaching the 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers’ record 33-game win streak! Kastles play starts this July. Check out this link for their schedule! Jensen continued to hop around the five indoor tennis courts provided by the Y to interact with members. By random chance, many participants were able to exchange ground strokes and volleys with a Grand Slam doubles champion!

Kelly Nygaard from the Kastles capped the one-hour long event off by thanking Rhonda, Associate Director of the Arlington Y and Trevor, President of ACTA, for putting together such a big event. Participants were able to receive pictures and autographs with Jensen. The Y and ACTA hosted a reception following the tennis clinic in the Y’s lounge.
