FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Tennis is booming, and now you can get in the game through local events and opportunities to play across the Midwest as part of National Tennis Month in May.
For the second year in a row, the United States Tennis Association/Midwest Section is hosting interactive tennis activities so kids and adults can try the game for free.
Play Tennis Midwest posted the following:
Kids and adults (ages 5+) will have the opportunity to play on the local courts at Swinney Park on Friday, May 13, 2022. Best of all: there is no charge to play. Even better: if you don’t have a tennis racket, a racket will be provided on site!
Last year, our inaugural “Play Tennis Midwest” events were held in 60 different locations across five states and attracted more than 2,100 attendees of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
Since 2019, tennis participation has increased significantly (Forbes, Racquet Sports Industry Magazine, USTA.com) with 4.9 million more people hitting the courts. Many participants wanted to discover a new sport that was easy to learn and safe to practice in the event of a pandemic. That’s why the USTA/Midwest chapter offers Play Tennis Midwest events – to encourage beginners new to the game and anyone looking to make a comeback to tennis!
