Tennis Block Party - Causing a Racquet in Clearwater

April 19, 2007 12:35 PM

DON'T MISS THE COMMUNITY TENNIS EVENT OF THE YEAR...USTA BLOCK PARTY IS BACK!

To celebrate USTA (United States Tennis Association) National Tennis Month, the Suncoast Tennis Foundation (the USTA Community Tennis Association for Pinellas County) has partnered with the City of Clearwater and the local USPTA (United States Professional Tennis Association) District 7 and Advantage Yours Tennis to throw a “Tennis Block Party”, Saturday, May 12, 10 AM-2PM at the Henry L. McMullen Tennis complex in Clearwater.  The event also celebrates USPTA’s “Tennis Across America” day.  Due to the success of last year’s event, which attracted approximately 200 people and garnered widespread publicity, the Suncoast Tennis Foundation has received a national USTA grant to help support this year’s event.

The event is free and open to the public.  No registration is required.  Kids and adults of all ages will find a variety of activities to participate in.  Some of the highlights for the kids are a Rapid Rally competition and a tennis carnival presenting a variety of tennis racquet and skill games.  All participants will receive prizes, an opportunity to sign up for USTA Junior Team Tennis programs and tennis instruction from local pros.  Adults will have an opportunity to receive a NTRP level assessment and play in an informal round robin for all skill levels.  Adults will also receive information about becoming a USTA member and joining USTA leagues.

Included in the “Block Party” will be Vendor Demo courts including Wilson, Volkl, Yonex/Fischer, Dunlop, Babolat and Prince for participants to try out the latest in tennis racquets and equipment and Cardio Tennis demonstrations.  All participants 18 and over are eligible to register to win a trip to the 2008 US Open!
