Inauguration of the “Court Ronald Agénor” in Sainte Terre, France
"Honored to have inaugurated the “Court Ronald Agénor” in Sainte Terre, France, with Mayor of Sainte Terre Guy Marty, and Jean Baptiste Voisin, President of Sainte Terre tennis club. It was an amazing day that started with a kid’s clinic, followed by a fun 2 hour long adult doubles round-robin with friends and club members. The day continued and my emotions were heightened with an official intronisation as a member for life of the “Confrérie de la Lamproie” with a memorable ceremony with officials. Sainte Terre proclaimed itself the world Capital of the Sea Lamprey from Bordeaux in 1990, and promotes this gastronomic region specialty. The day went long into the night with a gastronomic meal and fine wine that came with some classic french entertainment with a lot of singing and fun stories from the members of the club. Sainte Terre is located 50 kms from Bordeaux in the St Emilion region and produces some of the world’s best wines. Merci Sainte Terre for this memorable day in my life!" RA
