Dozens of children enjoyed tennis on a sunny morning Wednesday in Corinth thanks to a local Girl Scout.

Taylor Robinson, a sophomore at Corinth High School, brought the sport of tennis to local youth for her Gold Award project, which demonstrates leadership. (Photo gallery below).

Robinson, a CHS varsity tennis player, realized that many children were not very familiar with tennis. She wanted to get them on the court with a racket in their hand, and her effort has been a great success.

It was clear that the children, who were in kindergarten through sixth grade, had a great time as sounds of laughter and tennis balls hitting the CHS courts filled the morning.

Robinson has played tennis most of her life and noted that her grandfather Robert Hand used to be an assistant tennis coach at CHS.

Many people have helped Robinson with the three-day tennis clinic, including CHS tennis coach Andrea Lowery, Girl Scout leader Beverly Grisham, and volunteers from the tennis team and Girl Scout troop.

About 40 children took part in the camp, and Robinson hopes it will be an annual event. This was the first year for the camp, and the children received a T-shirt.

Robinson is the daughter of Rick and Georgianna Robinson of Corinth.
