Posted on 07/26/2019
Tennis Memphis plans to host Play Tennis, Memphis! Family Play Day on Saturday, August 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will offer Memphians the chance to play tennis and receive instruction at six tennis centers free of charge. The City of Memphis Division of Housing and Community Development is a partner in the event.

“I’m excited to partner on this initiative,” Mayor Jim Strickland said. “As someone who really enjoys playing the game, being able to share that same joy with anyone in our community that wants to learn is a good feeling.”

The purpose of the event is to share the sport of tennis with as many people as possible, regardless of skill level. Those interested in participating can visit any of the municipal tennis centers positioned throughout the City of Memphis. Participating tennis centers include: Leftwich, Wolbrecht, Raleigh, Eldon Roark, Frayser and Bellevue.

“Tennis is truly a sport that can be played by everyone and played for a lifetime,” said Stephen Lang, Tennis Memphis executive director. “By hosting Play Tennis, Memphis! Family Play Day, we hope that those who have never considered playing tennis to those with an advanced skill set will join us for this event. Aside from the benefits of the physical activity the sport brings, tennis also gives us a chance to interact with our neighbors, learn valuable life lessons and so much more. We hope to see Memphians from all walks of life on August 3!”

Those in attendance can expect instruction and clinics for all skill levels, private lessons, skills competitions, cardio tennis and more - all for free. Guests will also enjoy music, food and giveaways.
