Since 2012, the Raleigh Girls Club has been part of a pilot program, through the North Carolina Center for Afterschool Programs (NC CAP) and the US Tennis Association, which exposes youth to tennis. A clinic, held on June 18th for members of the Raleigh Girls Club, was led by Ebony Racquet Club with financial assistance from the Raleigh Tennis Association. The one-day event exposed 54 girls to tennis and was led by experienced tennis players and teachers. In July, several Raleigh Girls Club members will also have two-hour tennis lessons once a week for five weeks as part of the program. The July event will also be led by Ebony Racquet Club and sponsored by the Raleigh Tennis Association.
