“We are thrilled to expand our circle of friends,” said NYJTL President & CEO Deborah Antoine, “and we look forward to expanding these playing opportunities with additional events this summer.
"These women are passionate about their tennis and the wellness of their families, which makes them ideal role models for NYJTL," she continued.
