Play Days let kids experience the thrill of competition without the pressure. Kids are introduced to competition in a low-pressure setting where the emphasis is on fun. Play Days allow kids to play quick matches with others of similar age and skill so they can transition to team tennis and tournaments.
Play Days typically last two to three hours, and allow kids to play multiple matches in a non-elimination setting—all with the goal of enhancing skills and making friends in a fun, social atmosphere.
Play Days feature:
• Low-pressure, non-elimination formats
• Organized by level/ability or experience
• Modified serving for less-experienced players
• Rotate and play multiple opponents in short, continuous matches
• Play formats can vary and include team play
• Can feature wheelchair or adaptive play
• Provides a fun atmosphere with refreshments, prizes and awards
• Can be hosted by schools, parks, youth centers, colleges and tennis facilities
Nearly 4,000 Play Days held across the country last year. The program is growing every day, so there is a good chance there is a Play Day in your area.
