The United States Tennis Association will be hosting tennis lessons on Sunday, June 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free, and open to all ages and skill level.
Held at the tennis courts at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, the event dubbed “Love on Long Island,” will provide both children and adults the opportunity to learn the game of tennis or improve upon already acquired skills. Provided in conjunction with the United States Tennis Association and the United States Professional Tennis Association, the day will feature ‘10 and Under Tennis,’ a new and innovative way to learn the game that also provides a one year USTA membership for children 10 and under.
As the national governing body for the sport of tennis, the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) mission is to promote and develop the growth of the game. Established in 1881, the USTA is a progressive and diverse not-for-profit organization whose volunteers, professional staff, and financial resources support this singular mission. Similarly, the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) aims to grow the game of tennis by elevating the standards of tennis teaching professionals and coaches. Founded in 1927, it is the world’s oldest and largest association of tennis-teaching professionals and has more than 15,000 members worldwide.
