(FILA North America) - FILA sponsored tennis athlete, Sam Querrey, continues to give back to the community as the face of FILA’s Junior Tennis Mentor Program, which aims to inspire the next generation of tennis players by connecting them with professional athletes. With the BNP Paribas Open in full swing, FILA continues to produce on-site events with its roster of professional athletes.
On March 9th, more than 150 students from local area high school tennis teams traveled to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden to talk to Sam about the game, on-court advice and life on the tour, as well as participate in a clinic on the BNP Paribas Open practice courts. Students were offered an opportunity to work on their skills with Indian Wells Tennis Garden teaching pros, and interact and play alongside Sam as he traveled from court to court. Participants were outfitted in specially branded FILA tees, featuring the dedicated #FilaTennis hashtag.
