Block Parties Scheduled Across the South in Celebration of Tennis Month

April 15, 2008 10:12 AM

Throughout the month of May,designated as “Tennis Month” across the U.S., the USTA is serving up an ambitious and exciting community initiative with a series of “Tennis Block Parties” in markets nationwide. The Tennis Block Parties will bring new ways to involve and expose new and existing players to the unparalleled health and social benefits of tennis.

Hosted at public parks facilities, Tennis Block Parties will feature three hours of tennis instruction, interactive games, and attractions, offering people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn and enjoy the benefits of the game – from fun and competition to lifestyle and fitness. Skilled teaching professionals, accomplished touring pros, and special guests will guide attendees through games and skills during this day of fun and learning.

Tennis Block Party events and attractions include:

· Family Fun Zone – Parents teach kids how to play tennis in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere.

· Demo Racquet Court – Attendees can test the latest equipment on the market, including the newest racquets.

· Tennis 101 – Designed with the new player in mind, Tennis 101 provides a quick way to start rallying with a partner.

· Beat the Pros – Teaching pros and top-level players take on all- comers in an abbreviated tennis match.

· Team Tennis Challenge – Players enjoy the team experience of the sport beyond doubles.

· Champions of the Court – Competitors can strut their stuff and remain on the court until defeated by challengers in abbreviated tennis matches.
