USTA Tennis Play Day

Play Days are events designed to introduce kids to competition in a low pressure setting where  results are not documented. These events provide kids with the opportunity to continue to develop and enhance their skills. For both novices and experienced players, Play Days are a welcoming way for kids to experience the social and competitive aspects of tennis.

Organized by skill level, kids have the chance to gain additional play experience through a rotation of opponents and short, continuous matches over a two- to three-hour period. Play Days promote a sense of achievement through a fun and spirited atmosphere. 

All ages welcome.

Rain or Shine. Indoor and outdoor courts.
