Tennis 10-under, 8-under Play Day at Tampa Tennis @ HCC
 
10_UnderPlayDaysTampa Tennis at Hillsborough Community College will host a USTA Play Day for all children age 8-and-under and 10-and-under on Jan. 26, 2013, from noon-2 p.m.
 
The Play Day will feature prizes, music, games and more. The cost for the event is $5 for USTA members and $10 for non-USTA members.
 
USTA Play Days provide kids and parents of all skill levels with the opportunity to experience tennis in a social and fun setting. The events are open to the public with an emphasis placed on family participation, effort and sportsmanship. Information will also be available on 10 and Under Tennis, Jr. Team Tennis leagues, other local play opportunities, and special free USTA memberships for qualifying participants.
 
The event will feature the 10 and Under Tennis format, which allows smaller children to emulate adult play on smaller court sizes, with racquet sizes that fit their hands, foam and low-compression balls, a simple scoring system, all adjusted to ease kids into the sport. Similar mini-tennis formats have long been popular in Europe, where current stars such as Roger Federer first learned the game with age-adjusted racquets, balls and court sizes. For more advanced players the event will feature full-court play.
 
To register contact the club desk at (813) 348-1173, or e-mail Kevin Brundle at kevin@tampatennis.net.
