The next few months will provide the opportunity for hundreds of kids to be exposed to Net Generation Kids Days at USTA Pro Circuit events. In addition to great on-court activities, kids will have the opportunity to watch the rising stars of professional tennis.
The activities begin on July 3 at the Wichita Tennis Open with the Net Generation Kids’ Day which will include on-court activities for more than 400 youth from the Wichita area, the Net Generation Chill Zone and a tour of Wichita State’s Innovation Campus.
The WorldTeam Tennis’ Springfield Lasers will also host Net Generation activities throughout its home season, which begins on July 18 against the San Diego Aviators. The Net Generation Kids’ Night will be July 28.
Finally, on August 6, the Edwardsville Futures will host its Net Generation Kids’ Night.ADVERTISEMENT
Net Generation provides American tennis with one unified youth brand for children to get into the sport, making it easier for children and their parents to learn about tennis and get into the game in schools, parks and tennis clubs across the country.
The objective of Net Generation is to provide a safe connection to the sport, as well as a platform to celebrate individuality and self-expression. To ensure a safe environment, all Net Generation providers – including coaches, teachers, players and volunteers – must first go through a Safe Play Program, which involves a three-step process, including a background check, by registering on NetGeneration.com.
Net Generation will also have a presence at several other events throughout the summer including Sweet 16, the Junior Team Tennis Section Championship, Show-Me State Games, Zonals, and as part of a sport sampling at the US Fencing Championships in St. Louis.
