Long Time Street Fair Anchor. . . The Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Centers was there to support the Peninsula community. . . . Continued from Page 2 “The PV Fair is the single largest event in the area that brings together tens of thousands of people in the course of one weekend,” Hupp said. Since the Fair is so large, the Chamber prepares for the event from the beginning of the year. The Chamber takes care of the logistics, which includes arranging for permits, licenses or insurance; hiring the bands; getting the vendors to come and doing all the marketing. The Fair’s success reflects the effort put in by the staff. “Our fair has a reputation for being very family-friendly, well-organized and well-run, and I hear this from people who come: We are not a rowdy crowd,“ Hupp said. “We are families, grandparents, parents, young kids, students and more who are here to celebrate the beginning of summer, which gives a nice, warm community feeling that other fairs usually do not provide.” This year, the Fair had 25 rides in the carnival, almost double that of last year. This was possible through the available space in the upper parking lot given to the Chamber of Commerce from the Peninsula Shopping Center. The new space was used to hold the rides intended for the younger children, which was an idea that Hupp had wanted to implement for several years. In addition to a larger carnival, the amount of booths increased this year as well, and allowed visitors to enjoy the wide variety of food, art, goods and more.

Peninsula High School sophomore Ian Miller appreciated the bigger carnival this year, and agrees with Hupp’s idea for a distinction between the rides for younger and older kids. “I think it is cool for the younger elementary and middle school kids, and it seems as though there are more of them attending each year, but I think the high schoolers should get something else more thrilling and exclusive

residents of Palos Verdes know about, and it only happens for three days a year, so once you miss it, you have to wait until next year. If you do attend it, though, it is an experience you will treasure.” Hupp shares similar sentiments, especially in regards to the outreach of the Fair. Each year, a recurring obstacle Hupp and the Chamber of Commerce face is getting more people to attend the Fair, especially those from the community. Since this event strives to promote the community, having more locals know and come to the Fair and Festival would fulfill the purpose of the Fair. However, even with the presence of social media, the members of the Chamber of Commerce as well as local businesses find it difficult to break through the barrier and get the word out. Another obstacle that the staff supporting the Palos Verdes Fair experiences each year is increasing costs.

The first night of the Fair is reserved for the teenagers, also known as “Teen Night.” Peninsula High School sophomore Ashley Yoon had the opportunity to experience Teen Night this year, and enjoyed the novelty of the rides as well as the familiarity of the Fair itself. “I like that [the Fair] is like a small, hidden gem our community has, which is unique,” Yoon said. “It is a small event in Palos Verdes that not even all of the

Reaching Out . . . PV Net and many other local businesses were at the Street Fair meeting the public and highlighting their services.

The booths, entertainment and performances grow more expensive, but the Fair still remains as a free event, so it becomes increasingly difficult to create revenue from the Fair to pay the higher costs. As a result, sponsors for the Fair become essential to keep it running. Some of the sponsors include the Trump National Golf Club, Terranea Resort, Malaga Bank, State Farm Insurance, and many more who wish to make the Fair a success. Despite these obstacles, the staff always finds a way to overcome them with the help of the community, and finds that the results are worth the trouble after seeing the excitement and joy the Fair brings. “The people who come are here to listen to the music, hangout with their friends and dance, because there are not a lot of other opportunities to do that in the community,” Hupp said. “When you see that community stage, and see people dancing, the young families on the carnival rides or the little kids in the petting zoo, it is just such a unique and heartwarming experience.”

Tennis Offers Skills And Life Lessons Tennis members can train every aspect of their tennis performance, from the mind to the body. He also strives to ingrain skills and lessons that could be applied to future experiences. “One thing we do [at Tennis Power Academy] is teach players to do selfevaluations every three months, where players are forced to evaluate their own habits and set goals,” Messerli said. “If you look at any successful business person or athlete, he or she would always set goals and follow up on them, which is a skill I want to instill in my members.”

• Local tennis players put in long hours and hard work to refine skills.

By Asumi Shuda For many young people on the Hill, and around the country, sports are an integral part of their lives. They show their athleticism through sports such as basketball, baseball and football. The list of sports goes on. One sport in particular is making huge strides among young athletes on the Hill: tennis. Why tennis? One of the main reasons is the affluence of Palos Verdes residents. Tennis is an expensive sport, making it difficult for those in lower-income communities to seriously pursue it. From tennis equipment to finding the right coach, nothing comes cheap for aspiring tennis players. However, due to the general financial stability of those on the Peninsula, aspiring players do not have as much of a problem pursuing tennis success as many others. With money comes tennis clubs. In the South Bay, there are countless tennis clubs available for players to practice and perfect their skills. And with prominent tennis clubs come prominent coaches.

Another aspect that Messerli emphasizes about tennis is its culture of individuality, making it stand out from most other sports. For instance, the term that is continually heard in the sports world is “team”. A young athlete joins a team of basketball players or a team of baseball players. For aspiring tennis players, however, they enter an individual sport, where the results of match or a tournament is based on their individual effort. This means that these players

For Tennis Power Academy, one of the most renowned and experienced organizations in the South Bay, coaches from around the world come to teach aspiring young players about the insights of the sport and how to reach their dreams. For Oliver Messerli, director of Tennis Power Academy at Peninsula Racquet Club, this local affluence is a known reality Along with experienced coaches, Messerli operates his academy so that

Tennis Players Work To Refine Skills

. . . Continued from Page 5 would have to bear the weight of these results alone. For many athletes, however, this is just their cup of tea. For Palos Verdes High senior and varsity tennis captain Chloe Blakey, the individuality of the sport gives a player the sense of full accomplishment from his or her results. Blakey explains that this characteristic of tennis was one of the reasons she fell in love with the sport. “I first started playing because my parents were tennis players, but I continued playing and eventually loved the sport because it is an individual sport, not a team activity,” Blakey said. Tennis gives players an opportunity to apply the lessons and skills they learn on the court into other aspects of their life. The sport’s emphasizing of repetition, muscle memory, self-evaluation, recovery and discipline allows a player

to be prepared to operate in society as they grow older. From facing rejection to attaining perseverance, the world out there may require skills learned from athletics to succeed. Messerli hopes that the lessons his young athletes learn from Tennis Power Academy will help them follow their aspirations in the real world. This hope resonates with its members like incoming Peninsula High freshman Takehiro Shuda. “I think tennis is basically all in the head, so the sport really strengthens my mentality, which can be beneficial to real-life situations,” Shuda said. “In the future, I think I would be a lot stronger mentally than those who may not have been involved with a sport because it would increase my stubbornness and ability to persevere through times of struggle,’’ Shuda said. Gaining these skills, however, is difficult. Because tennis is a one-person sport, a player needs to bear the weight of both victories and losses. If a player loses a match, he or she needs to evaluate their own mistakes and their own losses in order to improve. Unlike team sports, where teammates are able to comfort one another in times of disappointment, tennis players, despite potential support from others, need to bear the results of their own execution. After all, the player’s efforts are what produces the end result. However, this is not an entirely negative aspect of tennis.

“A tennis player would learn to have repetition in their movements, the skill of time management and the ability to deal with rejection in order to be successful,” Messerli said. “These are skills that any businessperson [or anyone in the workplace] would have to learn later in their life, so learning these skills early on as a tennis player would bring an athlete one step ahead of the game.” According to Messerli, the selfevaluation and individuality of tennis produce positives that outweigh the negatives. The lessons attained from learning to recover from losses are what

teach valuable skills to a young player, which can help them deal with almost inevitable obstacles that may obstruct his or her path in the future. “Every single kid will go through difficulties and challenges, so I think tennis is an amazing tool for kids to persevere through these struggles and attain life skills,” Messerli said. Despite the inevitable obstacles and difficulties tennis may bring to a player, the lessons and skills learned from playing the sport may be beneficial for the future.
