Fifty (50) families participated and strengthened their relationships as they played against other families, while following TAG’s COVID-19 safety protocols.

Yuko Noble, 41, agreed that the Family Classic event “ignited a sense of competitiveness” within them, especially since they are playing against other families. She added that this is her “first time playing a tennis match and she had fun playing it with (my) daughter.”

When the event was announced, Arn Diaz,64, said that she registered her and her daughter, Tressa Diaz, 48, in hopes of spending quality time together and that the event was able to fulfill her expectations. Mina Noble,14, said that they enjoyed the tournament even though they lost the game, because at the end of the day, she was able to bond with her mom through playing tennis. Both the Diaz and Noble family agreed that they would definitely register for next year’s ASC Trust Family Classic Tournament, if held again.
