The United States Tennis Association (USTA) announced the 10 photos that have been selected—from hundreds of entries received—as finalists in its "Create Your Own Tennis Court" photo contest. Fans across the country now can cast their vote for the court they feel is the most creative.
The USTA’s 10 and Under Tennis initiative has made tennis the new pick-up game with smaller courts and modified equipment so the sport can be played anywhere. That’s why the USTA is looking for the most creative court set up.
The 2012 "Create Your Own Tennis Court" photo contest grand-prize winner will be determined by a nationwide online vote at www.createyourowntenniscourt.com
. Voting begins today and continues through September 12, 2012, at 11:59 p.m. ET. The grand-prize winner will be awarded a trip for four to New York City to attend the 2013 US Open Tennis Championships.
Photos of creative tennis courts from all over the country were submitted by entrants for consideration on www.createyourowntenniscourt.com
between May 7 and July 8, 2012. After carefully reviewing each submission, a panel of judges selected 10 photos as finalists. The 10 finalist photos can be viewed on www.createyourowntenniscourt.com
To encourage consumers to vote for their favorite, a secondary sweepstakes component has been added. Every consumer who votes in this contest will be included in a weekly drawing for a chance to win a 2012 US Open hat.
