Julie Calvert, PE Teacher at Frankfort Middle School, Frankfort, Indiana expressed her appreciation of the USTA School Tennis Curriculum:

"I thought you'd like to know that I am using the USTA packet that I received last fall.  I have to admit.....it is the best unit curriculum I've ever seen!  Usually the lessons are pretty weak, but I haven't had to rewrite any of them! 

"Its’ a busy 45 minutes by the time I jog them over to courts and get back....but that is a great workout for them. The kids are having fun....and so am I!"
