Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano has announced that the United States Tennis Association (USTA), the world’s largest tennis teaching association, will provide tennis lessons on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 1 – 3 p.m. The event is free, and open to all veterans, active military and their families.
Held on the tennis courts at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, the event dubbed “Military Family Tennis Play Day,” will provide veterans, active military and their families the opportunity to learn the game of tennis or improve upon already acquired skills.
The USTA has a firm commitment to military families and service members not just this year, but for years to come. In this first year, the USTA will reach, serve, and support the military with direct services impacting over 100,000 service members and their families. There exists a particular focus on geographically remote personnel and families living in civilian communities. The volunteer effort includes over 1100 Community Tennis Associations, NJTL chapters, Tennis Welcome Centers, and tennis organizations around the country.
