From September 1 through October 6 the USTA is offering Free Tennis Play Day so kids can sample tennis! They will have the opportunity to play tennis as well as participate in a variety of tennis activities. The Play Days are designed to give kids additional court time in a fun, low-pressure, non-elimination setting where they can continue to develop and enhance their skills.

Also if you’re interested in tennis for your child, Bumblebee Tennis does amazing stuff at McCarren Park tennis courts. McCarren was recently outfitted with 2 kids courts!
