WRC & Troop 788

Rossetti with John Babyak


Weston Racquet Club’s Director of Tennis Angelo Rossetti spent an evening with Weston Troop 788 - 30 boy scouts and their parents - leading a discussion about setting and achieving goals.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) provide programs for young people that build character, and for over a century the BSA has implemented programs combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.

Rossetti, a Guinness Book World Record holder for the longest tennis rally (with his twin brother, lasting 14 hours, 31 minutes; compiling 25,944 consecutive strokes) gave an inspirational talk. He spoke of the dedication, the determination and commitment, the training, the teamwork and mental toughness of goals. “You can achieve what you set in your mind to do, and follow your Boy Scout promise – to do your very best.”

“It was really cool,” exclaimed Grant Hoffman, a 5th grader.  “He talked about setting goals – but it might be hard for me to wait so long!”

Weston Racquet Club works with many youth group organizations in the surrounding community, inspiring and motivating children of all ages to challenge themselves, to try new things, to teach them about fitness, and to encourage their individuality.

“Weston Racquet Club is a very valuable part of our community,” said John Babyak, Troop 788 Scoutmaster.  “We look forward to growing our relationship with them.”
