Tennis Block Party-girlHey Miami, are you ready to cause a "racquet?" The biggest tennis party ever is coming to North Miami, as tennis players of all skill levels can pick up a racquet and join the party at the Arthur Snyder Tennis Center on Sunday, Sept. 12, from 2-5 p.m.

"Tennis Block Parties" are part of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) serving up exciting community initiatives in markets nationwide, bringing new ways to involve and expose new and existing players to the unparalleled health and social benefits of tennis. 

"The Fall brings a new attention to fitness, and tennis offers unparalleled ways to have fun and get into shape," said USTA Florida Tennis Program Coordinator Cathy Nordlund. "The Tennis Block Parties celebrate the sport and provide a new way for people to get out and play."

The Miami Block Party will be held at the Arthur Snyder Tennis Center, located at 16851 West Dixie Hwy., North Miami Beach, and is free to the public. Hosted at public parks facilities, Tennis Block Parties feature three hours of interactive games, tennis instruction 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 and kids are on the court to play tennis in a fun, non-competitive atmosphere.
* QuickStart Tennis -- The fast way to learn tennis for children ages 10-and-under.
* Beat the Pros -- Teaching pros and top-level players take on all comers in an abbreviated tennis match.
