Mast, who was ranked among the top 25 amateur players in the U.S. and has a degree in psychology from UMBC, believes that sports—specifically tennis—can increase a child’s self-esteem.

Each Friday is a pizza party and awards ceremony. $215 per week, half day 9 a.m.-12 p.m.; $340 per week, full day 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
