   Summer 2010: Jenner (23) and Kelsey (20) have strong ties to our Brighton Tennis Club.  Their mother, Shelley Pound, is a long-time resident of Brighton.  Her 'boys' have grown up in a number of countries around the world but often return to Brighton where they feel at home amongst their extended family.  They usually reside in our area for about 3 months of the year.  Jenner is a certified tennis coach.  He is currently on a tennis scholarship at Augusta State University in Georgia.  Kelsey, a very successful Junior Player on the world tennis stage, just recently turned Pro.  As far as the OTA is concerned, his home club is BRIGHTON.   Among other places, Kelsey finds himself playing tennis in China, and in the near future will be based out of either Quebec or Italy. Kelsey has an upcoming tournament in Thailand. We wish both "local boys" continued success.
