All the employees in the Princeton Ski Shop on 22nd St., Manhattan
were extremely helpful.

Tom especially went out of his way to make sure we made the proper
purchase. The manager also personally answered question and steered us in the right direction. We were so impressed by the staff's tennis knowledge and courtesy, that two of us purchased
tennis racquets on the spot. I will be going back to buy one also.

Thank you for sponsoring this event. As a USTA member, I really
