Hardwick to participate in tennis camp

On July 10, the United States Tennis Association selected T.J. Hardwick, 15, of Pecos, to participate at the 2002 USA Tennis NJTL Invitational Tennis Camp to be held Aug. 3 through Aug. 9, at the Dominguez Hills College in Carson (Los Angeles), California.

Thirty-four USA Tennis NJTL local program participants from around the country have been invited to attend this all-expense paid special event.

This week-long tennis event will not involve tennis play, but provides an opportunity for participants to learn new skills and on court drills. A tournament and awards ceremony will conclude the event on Aug. 8. While there, the participants will also enjoy time at the beach, a Dodgers game, a guided tour of the Museum of Tolerance and a trip to Universal Studios.

Hardwick started playing tennis his eighth grade year. He was a member of the varsity tennis team in the Fall 2001, his freshman year when the team brought home the District Championship for team tennis. He is looking forward to his week-long trip to California and hopes to gain a lot of skills and knowledge as well as have fun and make new friends from around the country.

Currently, Hardwick is at Sul Ross State University in Alpine competing in the Young Leaders Conference Great Debate Tournament. In February, T.J. was selected by the National Hispanic Institute to participate in this leadership program. The YLC is a program that develops strong communication skills, critical and analytical thinking and self-confidence in high school freshman. To be eligible to participate, the student must maintain a 3.0 grade point average and be enrolled in a college bound curriculum.

He is the son of Curt and Jessie Long.

Grandparents are Pat Hardwick of Midland and the late Jack Hardwick  and Gwyn and Janis Long of Spur.
