Sunday was a big day for the BCC Tennis Academy! Our kids and coaches were recognized for their outstanding work in our community during morning worship at Britton Christian Church. It was also announced that the Board of the BCC Tennis Academy has been given permission by the leaders of Britton Christian Church to build 3 tennis courts on the land just south of the church gym. With one indoor 10U court and soon-to-be 3 outdoor courts–the kids of the BCC Tennis Academy will have a place of their own to call “home!” This is incredible news and will open up new opportunities for us to reach out to the kids of our community.

Following the morning worship service, Shamycheal Baker, a graduating senior from Centennial High School in Oklahoma City, was recognized by Coach Steve Porter and Coach Rob Braver as the very first recipient of the $1,000.00 BCC Tennis Academy Leadership Scholarship. Shamycheal has been playing tennis with the BCCTA for about 5 years. He has gone out of his way to encourage all of our players, always has a great attitude, and is always willing to help our coaches. Shamycheal embodies the BCCTA motto: “Love God. Make Friends. Play Tennis!” Shamycheal plans on signing up for the Peace Corps after graduation and there is no doubt that he will make this world a better place. We’re proud of you Shamycheal!

Congratulations Shamycheal Baker
