May 2, 2014 02:08 PM

07-13-USTA-TENIS-PARA-TODOS-DESIGN_COOrlando, Fla. – USTA Florida and its ongoing Hispanic Outreach Initiative “Tenis para Todos” are inviting Hispanic families in the Orlando area to come enjoy great tennis events with their friends and families. Four free events will take place in the month of May, with on-court activities for individuals of all ages and levels of play.

“The events will feature a fun environment with games and prizes for all attendees, and the opportunity to speak directly with the pros for those interested about available local programs,” says USTA Florida Diversity & Marketing Coordinator Maria Romo-Jackson. “So far, the Hispanic community in the Orlando area has grown a great love for the sport of tennis with a good number of active participants in the year-round programs offered at the different facilities.”

Tenis Para Todos was launched last year to increase the participation of the Hispanic community in tennis.

“The tennis facilities in the Orlando area are gearing up to continue introducing tennis to the Hispanic community.  We want everyone to come out and enjoy the festivities and try tennis,” said Shelly Licorish, USTA Florida tennis program coordinator.  “We have many incentives for everyone to try the sport and we look forward to seeing you there!”.
