Belmont’s men’s and women’s tennis student-athletes joined the U.S. Davis Cup Team yesterday to lead a Net Generation kids’ clinic with approximately 80 local youth. Net Generation is the USTA’s new unified youth initiative to inspire the next generation of tennis players.

The U.S. Davis Cup Team members Jack Sock, Sam Querrey, Ryan Harrison and Steve Johnson along with Captain Jim Courier were all on hand to teach tennis drills and assist the young players with their form. Courier said, “It was a wonderfully organized event. The kids were very enthusiastic. A lot of good young players out there… The Belmont teams, male and female, were out running the program, assisting with the USTA. There was a lot of really nice energy there… It was a nice little diversion for the team to get away from the practice courts and the intensity there, have some fun with the local kids.”
