Tennis at San Quentin Prison

submitted by BornWinnerNetwork on 06/28/16 1

San Quentin prison sits on a secluded bay just north of San Francisco and inside the walls hosts the largest death row population in the United States. But for it's general population, San Quentin has been a pioneer at using sports programs to aid in rehabilitation. Perhaps its most notable is the tennis program, with a full tennis court sitting right in the middle of a notorious prison yard. We spent a morning with the inmates to experience a truly unique sports culture.
