                  ASTAfter School Tennis
Youth Tennis San Diego (YTSD’s) After School Tennis
(AST) provides a safe and secure school-based program
to encourage children to be physically active. Twenty
two years after it began, the program continues to grow
and excite both children and their parents.
   From Oceanside to San Ysidro , this outreach program
involves hundreds of children. YTSD provides racquets,
balls and insurance. Given the pluses of AST, it is no won-
der that 120 schools throughout San Diego County are
partnering with YTSD to provide the program to more
than 10,000 students.
   AST is an entry level program conducted in the secu-
rity of the school environment held September through
May. Students receive two hours of instruction a week
and participate in regularly scheduled special events at
the Barnes Tennis Center.
   To kick off the season, YTSD holds a free half-day
tennis camp for all participants at the Center. At the
end of the school year, the AST Field Day is always a
huge success.

                             MatchPoint Ball
On November 12, Youth Tennis San Diego hosted it’s 23rd MatchPoint
Ball at the Five Star resort – The Grand Del Mar Hotel. This year’s event
honored world renowned Sports Announcer DICK ENBERG.
    The silent auction was held in the Italian classically designed ball-
room and the over 300 guests enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and
drinks graciously underwritten by Papa Doug Manchester.
    Scott Kaplan and Billy Ray Smith were the emcees for the evening.          Tina and Jim Benedict
Scott and BR are the morning hosts on XX Sports Radio 1090 and are
also founders of Great Friends Foundation – serving military families.
    The Live Auction was spirited and included dinner at Mille Fleurs with
Dick Enberg, and a trip to the 2012 US Open and Wimbledon. Also includ-
ed were a week at a Martha’s Vineyard estate and the final item – a trip
to The Masters 2012. The auction was closed with an energetic Raise the
Paddle generating funds for the Barbara and Dick Enberg scholarship.
    Many thanks to the hard working co-chairs of the event, Terri and
Todd Anson, Margo and Scott Rogers, and Chris Swortwood.
    This year’s MatchPoint Ball was truly a community effort with numer-
ous volunteers and wonderful sponsors. YTSD thanks Wendy Doheny
McWethy, Larry Willens, and Bob Bowden for their ongoing support of
all our kids.
    The funds raised at the MatchPoint Ball will be used to continue pro-      Dick and Barbara Enberg with
viding excellent tennis and educational opportunities to ALL children.         Papa Doug Manchester.

2011-2012 Junior Player Council




The 2011-2012 Junior Player Council (JPC) had another productive year! During the fall, the council created and
packed activity bags for Rady’s Children’s Hospital Emergency Room Department and sent much needed toiletries
and personal items to our troops in Afghanistan. In addition to those activities, the council members rubbed some
elbow grease by prepping and painting the “Barnes player’s lounge,” not to mention organizing and hosting the
Annual Junior Awards Banquet with guidance from Gigi Kuo, JPC Chairman and Tom O’Brien, Director of Junior
Program. This years Council members include President, Dominique Cetale, Vice President Jakob Karnopp, Secretary
Alison Klein, Treasurer Steven Chen, Members at Large, Lindsay Brown, Nicole Yermanos, Emily Kuo, Peter Trhac,
Jana McCord, Marion Bouillion, Martin Marin, and Ibrahim Akbar.
