A tennis block party at the Kaua‘i Community College courts will highlight the celebration of May being National Tennis Month.
Hosted by the Kaua‘i District Tennis Association, the free event is designed to encourage people of all ages to pick up a racket.
The party at KCC will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and is open to the public.
According to a press release from the United States Tennis Association, tennis block parties offer attendees a day of free tennis, interactive games and attractions as well as the opportunity to learn and enjoy the benefits of the game.
The event will also debut the USTA’s new play format called QuickStart Tennis, which was created to help children aged 10 and under find success learning tennis from the very first swing.
This new format scales down all aspects of regulation tennis, including equipment, court dimensions and scoring so the game becomes specifically tailored to the child’s age and size.
The USTA is the national governing body for the sport of tennis in America and the leader in promoting and developing the growth of tennis at every level.
