Participants in the Nickelodeon Free Tennis Play Day
Twenty-four children braved the weather last Saturday to participate in the Nickelodeon Free Tennis Play Day hosted by Kingsport Parks and Recreation at the Kingsport Civic Auditorium.
Tennis instructors Greg Lumb and Marley Woods (along with a few volunteers) organized the young tennis players into four brackets and officiated matches in a race to eight points in a low pressure, non-elimination format.
Small prizes and certificates were awarded to the participants for participating in the event and a drawing was held at the event’s conclusion for three new Wilson tennis racquets.
Drinks and pizza were provided by Kingsport Parks and Recreation.
Next up for Kingsport Youth Tennis: Tennis & Treats Carnival at the Kingsport Farmer’s Market on Oct. 19. More information coming soon.
