Thanks to all for a memorable week on the Frick Park clay!
To the hosting families, very special thanks for welcoming all visiting players from Madrid, Spain, into your homes and lives. These players will now take your kindness and hospitality wherever they go. To all tournament players, thanks for your efforts, your sportsmanship - you will leave lasting marks on the clay, and new friendships well beyond the courts. To all parents, thanks for support for the tournament and all the players, and especially for helping us promote and encourage junior tennis at Frick Park as a community effort that embraces and celebrates diversity and now reaches out to the world. On behalf of Frick Park players and volunteers, Jose
