This week, Colin spent some time with Kevin Walker from the Arthur Allen Tennis Center. They were live on Court One hitting some balls back and forth with some rather antiquated racquets and talking about all the fabulous fun events which were happening this Cinco de Mayo weekend!  Colin was a bit out of breath from playing after using that tennis racket made for a giant. (Hey, it weighed a lot!)
