During National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month in September, the USTA and the tennis industry are hosting thousands of USTA Free Tennis Play Events in celebration of the 10th-annual Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play throughout the country in an effort to get kids active and involved in tennis. The following events are taking place in North San Diego County:
USTA Free Tennis Play Events
US Open Tennis Festival

The USTA is making it easier and more fun for kids to get into the game—and stay in the game. With tennis now sized right for age, kids play on shorter courts, with smaller racquets, and slower, lower-bouncing balls. Kids are able to play tennis made just for them, so they have a great time with the game and want to keep playing and improving.
USTA Free Tennis Play Events are free and open to the public, each showcasing how fun and easy it now is for families to get into the sport, as well as providing a great way for parents to spend time with their children while keeping them active.
