Mardy Fish visited the new YMCA Anthony Bowen Center of Metropolitan DC in Washington on Saturday. Together with WTA player Taylor Townsend, Fish toured the new facility and met some of the children who attend programmes there, hitting tennis balls with them and signing autographs.

“I had a great time at the YMCA and the facility was incredible,” said Fish, who is due to compete at the Citi Open next week. “I think it will serve as a great place for children and adults alike to congregate and improve their physical condition. In addition, I feel proud to be a part of the history that this particular YMCA honours.”

The facility re-opens this summer and celebrates the legacy of YMCA Anthony Bowen as historically the first African American Y, founded in 1853, along with its ability to adapt and serve the community’s evolving needs.

The new centre features a heated swimming pool, a spacious group exercise studio, a rooftop terrace for classes, a teaching kitchen and a rock climbing wall.
