Building Community Through Tennis
Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate and amplify the voices that enrich our tennis community in the Mid-Atlantic. This month, we are exploring how African-Americans in the region are finding, creating, and building community through tennis.
This week we chatted with Mydron Jones of Williamsburg, Va. Jones, a Durham, Nc. native found her way to tennis 15 years ago as a former track athlete looking to stay active. While she has experience competing on teams and in tournaments, Jones currently enjoys playing recreationally with Williamsburg Parks & Recreation. Watch what she had to say about the impact of tennis in her life and why she believes access to tennis is important for all people.
