Racine Tennis Block Party This Saturday!

Throughout the month of May – designated as “Tennis Month” across the U.S. the USTA is serving up an ambitious and exciting community initiative with a series of “Tennis Block Parties” in markets nationwide. The Tennis Block Parties will bring new ways to involve new players to the unparalleled health and social benefits of tennis. 

The Racine Block Party will be held on Saturday, May 19th at Lockwood Park Tennis Courts, from 1:00 to 3:00pm and is free to the public!

Hosted at public parks facilities, Tennis Block Parties will feature two hours of tennis instruction and interactive games offering people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn and enjoy the benefits of the game – from fun and competition to lifestyle and fitness. Skilled teaching professionals and special guests will guide attendees through games and skills during the afternoon of fun and learning. 

Tennis Block Party events and attractions include:

Family Fun – Parents are encouraged to get out on the court with their kids!
Tennis 101 – Designed with the new player in mind, Tennis 101 provides a quick way to start rallying with a partner.
Champions of the Court – Competitors can strut their stuff and remain on the court until defeated by challengers in abbreviated tennis matches.

"Spring brings a new attention to fitness, and tennis offers unparalleled ways to have fun and get into shape," said Kristine Slamka, Secretary of the Racine Community Tennis Association. "The Tennis Block Parties celebrate the sport and provide a new way for people to get out and play."
