“We run a seven-week summer program in Tyler every year,” he said. “It is a free program and is for 6-15 year olds.”

Blake, who will be making his first trip to Natchez, said Duncan Park tennis director Henry Harris was key in getting him to come.

“I play on a tennis circuit and Henry is a really good friend of mine,” Blake said.
