What would make up an ideal day for a kid? Would sport, being outdoors and getting to hit a ball around with LIEZEL HUBER, ranked #3 in Doubles worldwide do the trick?
The USANA Tennis Clinic held on 12 January provided a chance for USANA Associates and staff children to get outdoors and meet Liezel Huber for a private coaching session. What did our kids have to say about their experiences when interviewed? Rebecca Mulham, aged 11, exclaimed, ‘Getting to hit the ball with world champion Liezel Huber was the highlight of my day! She was awesome!’ Nine-year-old Sienna Mulham piped in with ‘I loved getting autographs from Liezel and the tennis coaches! My favourite bit was when we played with her!’. And for Nana Asamoah, aged seven, it was just too short: ‘The tennis day was fun, exciting, enjoyable and interesting. I didn’t want to leave!’
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Check out the looks on those faces. It’s hard to say who was having more fun on the day – Liezel or the kids.
This is what Liezel had to say about her experience when we caught up with her on the day: “I had a great time meeting and playing a few games with the children and staff of USANA. It was fantastic to see so much enthusiasm!”. Liezel also offered some advice and helpful tips to her rapt audience through her coaching session, and stayed on after the tennis session to sign autographs and t-shirts. What a champion! We are proud to have Liezel as one of our USANA WTA Ambassadors.
