“Super fun! I have never played tennis in 53 years. I came with my nine-year-old daughter and my wife we all loved it! Thanks for your exposing is to the game, for teaching us and for giving your time and talent.”
We attended for the first time last year. It was our first experience with tennis. It was so much fun that I signed us all up for lessons. We’ve been playing for a year, and it has become our “family fun time.
Great clinic to spark interest in the sport for all ages and skill levels. Thanks so much to the coaches and volunteers who made this happen.
Thank you so much for volunteering your time to teach our kids about tennis. They had a fun time and want to continue with tennis lessons.
I loved the one-on-one pointers from the coaches and the encouragement throughout the clinic. I will be coming back with my sister the next time Boots on the Court comes to MacDill AFB.
“Thank you for giving my daughter a first wonderful impression into the sport of tennis, Everybody was so fun, motivating and kind. We had an amazing experience!
Thank you! Well organized, on time, SUPER friendly. We really enjoyed it. Thanks to all!”
Excellent program! You guys were so helpful and made it a really fun experience as well. Please come again!
Thanks you so much for this session. This is the second year we’ve attended; we missed you last year! The collaboration with the tennis team was fantastic. The Boots on the Court staff is so friendly and helpful. My ‘shy’ kid loves the stress-free environment, and I love that they are getting a positive exposure to the game. Can’t thank you and the volunteers enough!
Boots on the Court was absolutely phenomenal. All five members of our family participated. None of us has ever played tennis before but I’ve been wanting to learn. The instruction was encouraging, fun, and we all learned a lot. Because it was free, we did not hesitate to sign up. Thank you so much for this amazing program. We will be playing as a family now and highly recommend this program! Please come back!
“Thanks for taking the time to bring tennis to Randolph again this year. We greatly appreciate your time and all the effort.”
“Great feedback and direction; really enjoyed it.”
“My kids got a great first intro to tennis. They all had fun and are already asking for formal lessons. Thank you so much!”
“It was amazing! The staff were all very friendly. My kids had an amazing time. We would sign up every chance we get.”
Awesome experience; an on-base activity for the entire family. Third year in a row for this activity; looking forward to next year. Thanks FSS for organizing this every year!
The volunteers were amazing. They were so patient with the kids and really helped them learn new skills in tennis and enjoy it. Thank you!
The instructors made it so fun especially since we had zero experience. They were so patient AND FUNNY! We loved it!!
Can we do it once a month?
I was so impressed by the coaches’ and volunteers’ positive feedback and patience. They were just as great with the kids as they were with the adults. They knew how to work with every skill level.
Than you so much for bringing Boots on the Court to West Point. What a neat experience. Please come back!!
My husband is currently deployed, so to see my children smiling, excited and jumping up and down was touching! THANK YOU!! You have no idea the joy you brought to us today.
We had a blast again this year. We are overwhelmed by your generosity in organizing and hosting these tennis events. Your interaction with all the kids is amazing. In the three years that my son has attended, we have never seen anyone leave without a big smile. Thank you.
The coaches and staff were amazing. They not only took their time, but also had the heart to actually talk to the kids on their level. Thank you so much for what you do.
Thank you for offering these clinics! We have wished for tennis clinics on base!
My son is four; there aren’t a lot of activities for his age group. He seemed to enjoy this. Very well organized.
All of the coaches brought so much enthusiasm to the clinics. They seemed to enjoy being here which made it fun for the participants and observers. Thank you for having us!
This was an awesome experience for my three girls. They enjoyed every minute. Thank you guys so much!
This was my second time participating, and I will participate every chance I get! Thank you!
This is the second time I’ve attended this clinic, and I enjoyed it just as much. I appreciate the coaches and their time and experience so much. What a wonderful thing this clinic is doing for the military. Thanks you so much!!
I loved it, my wife loved it and my son loved it. I just wish we could do it at least two times a year. Great motivation for wounded warriors. Thanks.
We attended last year and couldn’t wait to see the flyer appear again at the Fitness Center. The folks that run this are amazing, fun people. Thanks so much; you are appreciated!!
Great way to watch the kids have fun and learn.
Thank you! Please come back next year.
My children loved it.
We love having the event and seeing all the pros!
The coaches were very patient. Love this!
My four-year-old daughter smiled the entire time. I play tennis and have taken her out to play, but she lasts about five minutes. She LOVED this entire clinic and the organization and enthusiasm of the instructors made all the difference. What an event! Dick was cracking all the parents up. So fun. THANK YOU!!!
We loved this clinic. It provided an introduction to tennis to which my child has never been exposed before. It gave us the opportunity to see if this sport is something she would like doing. She has never done any workshop that involved a ball before. Sad, but true. I love that I can see how well she cooperates with other team members as well as the coaches. Sportsmanship, love of sports and future aspirations are all a parent can hope for. Thank you very much.
Amazing! Thank you so much! We have come two years now and our experience has been amazing! We appreciate your time and all the things you teach us during your time here.
Thanks so much to Mr. Stockton, Colonel Houston and all the pros who helped! They were wonderful, positive and instructive. Kids and adults both had a great time.
This was one of the best events I’ve attended in years. Everyone involved was friendly, knowledgeable and so fun. What a great event! Thank you to everyone for the time and experience.
Do it again! Thank you!!
It was wonderful! Please come again!
This was a great activity for the kids!
I really enjoyed watching my 4 year old interact with the coaches. The coaches were very good with the kids. I would love to bring him back again.
This is a great clinic with great people, especially when spouses are deployed.
I enjoyed this event very much. The coaches were very polite and professional. felt welcomed and appreciated from the moment I walked through the front door until the moment I left. Mr. Stockton even followed-up with me after the clinic and sent my girlfriend and me racquets to continue playing the sport. I truly feel loved by the Blue Sky Foundation and Mr. Dick Stockton. I would recommend this clinic to all veterans!”
Great tips- loved it!!! Great program…all participants were enthusiastic and motivated thanks to the coaches. They were all clearly competent and inspirational. It’s evident that they all really enjoy tennis and that feeds off on to others. Can’t thank you enough Mr. Stockton and crew!!!
I can’t help but say again what a pleasure it was to meet and work with you all at Randolph AFB. Your warmth and kindness showed in everything you both did, and I speak again for the troops that they thoroughly enjoyed their time that day on the courts.
I love tennis, so I’m biased toward anything tennis-related. That said, I found the instruction and activities very innovative and clever. The instructors’ energy was contagious. My daughter was very shy to start, but she quickly warmed up to the activity, and she is excited to get back out on the court.
Second year attending. Outstanding opportunity and service. Keep up the good work.
The clinic helped me improve my backhand swing.
The event was well organized. The volunteers were all very friendly and warm. The pros seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. Thank you for all the effort to make this happen.
Wonderful program! Thank you for doing this. My kids had a blast, and I loved being able to expose them to tennis a little without a huge commitment of time/money.
This is a wonderful experience. I am grateful for having this clinic to expose my kids to the sport. The event was very well organized. I hope you continue to come to Fort Bragg so that others can enjoy the clinic, too.
Awesome experience! The instructors were so patient and knowledgeable. Thank you so much.”
Amazing! All the coaches were so friendly, knowledgeable and talented! Thank you so much for the amazing experience! Please do this again!
Excellent instruction and wonderful community event. FUN!! So appreciate the efforts of Blue Sky Foundation. Love the attitude and energy of the whole staff.
Huge thank you for doing this! Events like this supporting military families make a big difference in our lives.”
Great organization at registration; fantastic age appropriate instruction; great connect with the children; would love to see you return next year!
My wife said that this is what makes being in the Army and living on-post the best. Thank you so much for coming out and providing this event for us. I truly believe this was the best event so far I have been to on Ft. Jackson.
The T3 event was one of the most enjoyable days my wife and I have had at Fort Jackson over the past two years. The team from T3 was professional, talented, entertaining, informative and simply amazing. I have never stood that close to a Wimbledon Champion in my life or been instructed by such incredible athletes. The clinics were fun, exciting and extremely rewarding. The weather was incredible, and the setting was absolutely perfect. It was incredible to see such talented and caring athletes take the time to take care of soldiers and their families. We may not have produced any future USTA champions, but we could have, or at least planted some seeds for a lifetime of enjoyment and fun in tennis. Thank you to the professionals of T3, and thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Dick Stockton. What an amazing couple and a world-class program. We can’t wait to do it again!!
Dick Stockton’s Thanking our Troops through Tennis was definitely the best event that has come to Fort Jackson in the two years we have been stationed here. The clinics included ALL levels of play and ALL ages which is hard to do with any type of event, but T3 managed to include everyone with ease. The staff was amazing and particularly patient with the youngest players; they actually looked like they were having as much fun as we were! My husband and I were thrilled with the level of excitement that Dick and his staff brought to Fort Jackson, and we are hopeful that they will return! Thanks so much to Dick, Liz and their team for supporting our Fort Jackson troops and families!!
I had the distinct pleasure of participating in a Thanking our Troops through Tennis (T3) event at Fort Jackson on Armed Forces Day, May 17, 2014. It was an outstanding effort by a group of outstanding professionals who made the day a tremendous success, both on and off the courts. The reverberation of the event still echoes across the tennis center at Fort Jackson as the rallying cry is, ‘will there be another such event?’ The Fort Jackson community thanks Dick and Liz Stockton and their volunteers for their extreme efforts. We appreciate the time and effort it takes to put on such a wonderful event. As you reach out to our warriors and their families to offer a gesture of gratitude to the multiple families and soldiers who serve this great nation, we salute you!!”
Just wanted to thank you for hooking us up with Dick Stockton and his team for the T3 event! It was a great way to open our new tennis courts and a real treat for all of us to meet these tennis pros. Thanks again for thinking of us and sending us this great program!
Great event for all levels.
Thank you so much. Excellent help for my son.
The Thanking our Troops through Tennis (T3) event held at Joint Base Andrews in early Oct 13 was a phenomenal success! We had over 120 participants in every age category and level of playing ability. It was especially gratifying to see so many youth participating in the sport, many for the first time. The T3 professionals and their support staff were fantastic to work with and brought both a teaching atmosphere as well as excitement and energy to the event that you might expect from a group of world-class athletes and professional tennis hall of fame inductees, but they upped their game even more and brought this event to unimaginable levels. Everyone enjoyed this super event from the youngest youth and their families to our senior leaders and retirees. We can’t say enough about the selfless attitude, kind heart and giving spirit of T3 pros that made this event a huge hit…it was just plain fun and we most definitely look forward to our next event…hopefully very soon! For installations out there fortunate enough to be offered this opportunity, jump all over it and be ready for some incredible fun.
Lots of time invested in us players; thank you. I’m deployed here, and this was great.
Outstanding event!! My kids loved the experience, and I will spread the word the next time you guys come around. Thank you!
All of the coaches were so nice and helpful. Very encouraging. FANTASTIC EVENT!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! for bringing your “Thanking our Troops through Tennis (T3)” event to our Fort Bragg community/service members/families. We are so appreciative!!! The event was FANTASTIC! I was in awe just like everyone else who was participating or watching from the sidelines. So many smiles and so much fun!!! WOW!!!! Looking forward to T3 coming back to Fort Bragg in the near future.
My mom has always played [tennis], and I never thought it could be so much fun. I really want to take lessons now and get my friends to play too.
Really enjoyable experience! The pros were patient and encouraging. Made tennis seem easy!
