City to Celebrate Tennis

The department in partnership with the Richmond Tennis Association will hold a Tennis Night in America celebration on Thursday, March 24, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the Arthur Ashe Center.
Tennis Night in American is a national program of the United States Tennis Association to register youth for tennis classes with park and recreation departments and community centers throughout the month of March. It also introduces the new QuickStart Tennis program to the public.
QuickStart Tennis focuses on children age 10 and younger and uses smaller courts, larger rackets and bigger tennis balls so that children can quickly learn and enjoy the sport.
The Richmond event will include the opportunity for parents to register their children age 10 and younger for tennis classes, as well as games, clinics, prizes, free snacks, information on coaching and team management and fun for all. It is free to attend.
