USTA Tennis Block Party is Back in Pinellas County

April 14, 2008 11:09 AM

DON’T MISS THE COMMUNITY TENNIS EVENT OF THE YEAR...
USTA BLOCK PARTY IS BACK IN PINELLAS COUNTY!


To celebrate USTA’s designation of May as National Tennis Month and USPTA’s “Tennis Across America Day”, a free Tennis Block Party is planned for Saturday, May 10th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the McMullen Tennis Complex in Clearwater. 

The Suncoast Tennis Foundation (Pinellas County) has partnered with the City of Clearwater, local USPTA District 7 teaching professionals and Advantage Yours Tennis to provide a day full of tennis racquet and skill games for all ages and levels.  With approximately 300 participants, last year’s event received live television coverage locally and national attention as one of the most successful events of its kind in the country.

The event is FREE open to the public.  NO  registration is required.  Kids and adults will find a variety of activities.  The Block Party will showcase the unparalleled health and social benefits of tennis in a fun and dynamic way.  Some of the highlights for the kids include the new QuickStart Tennis format that helps kids 10 and under learn and play the game by utilizing specialized equipment.  Now any child between ages five and ten can start playing tennis almost immediately, even if they have never picked up a racquet before.  For the five and under group, there will be a Tot Tennis Carnival.

Adults and experienced youth players will have an opportunity to play in an informal round robin for all skill levels and receive a NTRP level assessment.  Information will be available on joining the USTA and local leagues and programs for adults and youths.  All participants will receive prizes.
 
A highlight will be vendor courts with representatives from Wilson, Vokl, Babolat, Prince, Dunlop and others providing demo racquets for trial use.  All the vendors will have great giveaways and Advantage Yours will give a percentage discount to all who make a purchase at the store as a result of their attending the Block Party.

McMullen Tennis Complex is located at 1000 Edenville Ave., Clearwater, FL 33764; 727-669-1919.
