USTA LI Region Hosts Annual Kids' Day 2014

The USTA Long Island Region recently hosted its annual Long Island Kids Day, co-sponsored by National Junior Tennis & Learning and the Baldwin Tennis Club.

More than 200 children from across Long Island participated in the event at the tennis courts at Baldwin High School. Coordinated by local tennis pros and other volunteers, the kids enjoyed tennis learning, games, contests, food and fun. Newcomers to the sport were introduced to the basics of 10-and-under tennis while those with more experience played matches. The children enjoyed playing tennis with their peers from other parts of Long Island, learning new skills and making new friends.

The following groups brought their campers/students to Kids Day: Youth Enrichment Services, West Islip (http://www.yesnews.org/); Hicksville Community Tennis (http://www.hicksvilletennis.com/); Baldwin Tennis Club (http://baldwintennisclub.com/); Central Islip Community Tennis; Alliance Tennis, Roosevelt; and Daniel Burgess Tennis Academy Summer Camp, Freeport.
