Eastern Organizations Plan March Tennis Festivals

February 15, 2013 10:51 AM
Children in Gotham Tennis Academy will be participating in a March Tennis Festival
USTA Eastern member organizations from the Bronx to Buffalo are gearing up for the start of the spring tennis season, with a series of festivals in March designed to get kids active and excited about tennis.
The Eastern organizations are among more than a thousand across the U.S. that are hosting Tennis Festivals to showcase the fun and excitement of playing tennis and share the benefits with parents of involving their children in the sport. Tennis Festivals welcome the whole family to play tennis at all skill levels.
Among those holding March Tennis Festivals in Eastern is the Gotham Tennis Academy at Stadium Tennis Center (Bronx, NY), which will be holding its event on Saturday, March 9, from 3pm to 5pm.
"We are looking forward to having parents and kids visit our facility to experience how tennis is great fun for the whole family," said Tom Clear, Director of Tennis for the Academy. "They will get to meet our staff, tour our clubhouse and fall in love with tennis."  
To register for the event, contact Lauren Levine at lauren@stadiumtennisnyc.com.
