His experience fueled his passion for the game but increased his compassion for others who may not be able to afford the sport. Tennis is “a costly sport,” and the clinics through Jefferson Parish allow all children to get coached at a reasonable cost. COVID- 19 has allowed Chanes to re-invent himself. He looks forward to his clinics. “To me, learning is having fun. I always have a statement ‘competing must be fun. However, winning is much more fun.'” Chanes hopes to teach each participant in his clinic the importance of learning how to compete. He stated, “competing comes before winning in the dictionary and real life.” Chanes strives to instill the basics of competing, Tennis’s foundation, and passion for the game to not only members of his clinics but also anyone who wishes to take a lesson with him.
