Just to clarify, the USTA Serves grant helped underwrite a successful after-school program in East Palo Alto, introducing more than 100 elementary-aged children to tennis. Thanks to USTA Serves and generous supporters in the community, EPATT hopes to expand this EPA-based program to include tutoring and parent education -- similar to the EPATT program held on the Stanford campus -- in the coming academic year. Additionally, EPATT just built four permanent tennis courts at EPA's Green Oaks/Cesar Chavez Academy.
