Learning from the pros
First photo: Arissa Kahaiali’i, 9, celebrates a good shot Wednesday at the Lahaina Recreation Center. Youths from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui-Lahaina Club learned about tennis from USTA pros Dean O’Brien and Juan Spir, who are doubles partners competing in the Royal Lahaina Challenger. They accepted an invitation to stop by the club and to share their experiences and knowledge of the sport they have both been playing since they were young children. “I feel like so many kids these days are getting into other sports,” O’Brien said. “Who knows, maybe you have a hidden talent here.” Second photo: Jacques Djuberg, 8, returns a shot in front of O’Brien.
