Students at Meriwether Lewis Elementary School got a chance to play tennis with a champion Wednesday.
Nicola Slater spoke to students about her tennis career. She is the 2013 Boyd Tinsley Women's Clay Court Classic Doubles Champion. Slater played a little tennis with some of the students, stressing the importance of kids getting involved in sports at an early age.
"The opportunity to keep playing and go to school and get a scholarship and get an education for free while doing something they love especially now a days kids with video games and we're losing out cell phones and just to keep them active and get them involved in sports."
Slater is once again playing in this year's championship, which is already underway.
