Players of all ages got tips from the professional players on hand, who included brand ambassador Murphy Jensen, Timea Bacsinsky, David Goffin, Yung-Jan and Hao-Ching Chan, Pablo Cuevas, Christina McHale, Nicolas Mahut and Denis Kudla. Beryl Lacoste Hamilton, president of the Fondation Lacoste (and granddaughter of brand founder Rene Lacoste), and Joelle Grunberg, president and CEO of Lacoste North America, were also there to join in the fun.
