26 years of tennis miracles for Anguillan kids
The Anguilla Tennis Academy
The Anguilla Tennis Academy (ATA) has been doing miracles for 26 years by offering tennis to needy kids on the island. Their efforts have not only generated an excess of $1,000,000 in US scholarships for local talents, but also provided nearly free summer camps to thousands of kids who could not afford it otherwise.
Mitchelle Lake, the man behind ATA was responsible for its humble beginning. His goal was to provide young Anguillans with access and opportunity. Today this venue has grown into something much more than what was originally imagined; it now stands proudly not just for its home country but all over the world!
