Day 154: National Tennis Month

If you're a tennis player, you know how much fun it is to play tennis, and at the same time, to get a good aerobic workout. Tennis is also a great activity for moms, kids and families, which is why the USTA is sponsoring National Tennis Month with activities scheduled for nearly every day in the month of May. Not only is this a good opportunity to introduce the sport of tennis as a family sport, but the national program also uses this time to focus on positive activities for families.

In a united effort to support the growth of tennis, communities throughout the country will host tennis activities, including festivals, clinics and tournaments, during the month of May. Events include on and off court games for players of all ages and skill levels. This year, nearly 200 communities across the country will celebrate tennis at the local level.

Tennis has always been regarded as one of the most beneficial activities for both physical and mental wellbeing. It is a sport in which the whole family can participate. Tennis creates the perfect bonding opportunity between parents and their children, and provides great opportunities to teach physical activity, discipline and hard work.
