WASHINGTON, D.C. - It was an already special day for a group of young tennis players in Washington, D.C.
Over 100 children from local National Junior Tennis and Learning (NJTL) programs had the honor of participating in a QuickStart Tennis clinic on the South Lawn of the White House alongside star professional players Sam Querrey and Bob and Mike Bryan.
But towards the end of the clinic, the morning became even better and offered another once in a lifetime opportunity: They got to meet and shake hands with President Barack Obama.
President Obama, a tennis player himself, greeted the children, who were extremely excited to see him and he told them he came to see their great form.
"It is good to see you guys!" President Obama also called to the children.
