INDIAN WELLS, CA, USA - Before the start of the BNP Paribas Open, WTA Charities partnered with Indian Wells Kids Day and Harper For Kids to inspire and empower children.

Johanna Larsson, Annika Beck, Louisa Chirico took to Practice Court 2 at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden to host a children's clinic.

Kids from various schools took part to hit a few balls, get some tennis tips and have a chat with the players:

But the fun wasn't just on the tennis court; former WTA player Peanut Harper - who founded Harper For Kids, an organization that empowers children to succeed in life through enrichment programs - put together a fun table where kids could take part in artistic activities like clay molding.
