BREC has given Parkview Elementary School tennis equipment after the Baton Rouge public school had the most students attend a summer program conducted by a recreation office.
Last year, BREC sent supplies to Westdale Heights Academic Magnet School in recognition of top attendance at the QuickStart Carnival held at the BREC Forest Park Tennis Center.
Yvette Marshall, BREC tennis manager, said Parkview is getting 24 junior racquets, a portable tennis net and foam tennis balls, all suited for the smaller courts in the QuickStart format, and adapted for youth, 5 to 10 years old.
BREC’s next QuickStart Carnival is 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Highland Park Tennis Center. Any elementary school is eligible to win the equipment package for this event.
