February 13, 2012 02:32 PM
More than 38 tennis clubs and facilities across Florida have registered to host Tennis Play Days, Youth Registration days, Kids' Tennis Clubs, and other events during the United States Tennis Association's "March Into Tennis" campaign during the month of March to register youth for local play opportunities in 2012.

Look below for a facility near you in March where kids can kick-off the tennis year with a fun event while learning of upcoming play opportunities in the area.

Clubs and facilities can also still sign-up to receive USTA national and local public relations support, geo-targeted online advertising, turnkey marketing materials, a $50 event pack voucher, a downloadable how-to guide, and national promotion on Nickelodeon and ESPN2 beginning this month to drive children and parents to local clubs. Events can be held any time through the month of March or beyond.

Here are the facilities/clubs that have signed-up as of Feb. 1 in Florida, and the event contact info (e-mail club for further info and confirmation):

"The annual March Youth Registration events are great ways to get players to come out and connect with exciting new programs such as 10 and Under Tennis and Jr. Team Tennis," says USTA Florida Associate Executive Director Andy McFarland. "Clubs and facilities can sign-up kids for upcoming Spring and Summer tennis programs and other offerings."

Play Days are events to introduce kids to competition in a fun, low-pressure setting where results are not documented and kids have the opportunity to get additional play experience. Kids' Tennis Club is a program that allows kids to sample tennis through supervised play and interactive activities.

The month's activity will come together early on March 5 with the television broadcast of Tennis Night in America from Madison Square Garden in New York City on ESPN3 in prime time and re-run at 11:30 p.m. on ESPN2, featuring the BNP Paribas Showdown with Maria Sharapova vs. Caroline Wozniacki, and Roger Federer vs. Andy Roddick.

For more information on these programs, USTA Youth Registration and more, go to www.usta.com/Coaches-Organizers/event_calendar/.
