Central Indiana Tennis Association Encourages Kids to Play Tennis at 500 Festival Kids's Day
Central Indiana District |
To kick off the city-wide celebration for the Indianapolis 500, the Central Indiana Tennis Association (CIN) introduced Indianapolis residents to the sport of tennis at Kids’s Day, presented by the 500 Festival. CIN was able to connect with more than 250 juniors about the exciting possibilities of tennis in their area.
From their coveted spot on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis, CIN encouraged kids of all ages to come try tennis on a pop-up court. Dedicated volunteers were on standby to help the children with their swings and encourage them as they played with red balls. In addition to receiving instruction from staff and volunteers, families were informed of the many junior tennis offerings in the Indianapolis and surrounding areas.
Throughout the day, there was a steady flow of kids engaging with tennis, many of them for the first time. ADVERTISEMENT It is the hope of CIN staff that a large majority of these junior players will explore the affordable programming options throughout the summer and beyond. This is CIN's fourth year participating in Kids’s Day, and it has become an important way to interact with the Indianapolis community.
