“This is a great event for a great cause,” said Stan Werlin, President of the South Yarmouth Tennis Club. Proceeds will benefit the South Yarmouth Tennis Club’s Youth Scholarship Program. “Dan Reida, of Bass River Chiropractic, 833 main Street, South Yarmouth, is someone who truly believes in the motto “Pay-It Forward.” Dan has been a sponsor and an advocate for tennis on Cape Cod for many years. We are very fortunate to have Dan as a Board member at our club and as the financial backer of this event,” he said.
Bass River Chiropractic purchased all of the equipment for the event and is providing prize monies, T-shirts, gift certificates and refreshments including pizza, subs and beverages. Reida encourages players of all ages and ability to come out and give it a try. “If you have a tennis partner or teammates that think they are faster or more accurate than you - challenge them and see. Last year, everyone had a great time and it was really fun seeing both how fast and accurately they served,” he said.
