NorCal Staff | July 25, 2016
On July 18, 2016 over 350 kids were invited to participate in its annual Kids Day at the Bank of the West Classic Where the Kids Rule! Hosted by USTA NorCal in collaboration with IMG, Bank of the West at Stanford University and USTA
Hispanic Engagement Advisory Group. It was a fun filled day with interactive mini tennis games, festive music, prizes, fun competitions, a serving-speed booth, and activities for all ability levels.
The kids got a chance to meet a few of the WTA players and get an autographed Bank of the West Classic poster. Katrina Adams, USTA Chairman of the Board, flew in from New York and the USTA NorCal’s Board President, Margie Campbell also came to partake in the day’s event!
In addition to the festivities, the participating grass-roots organizations and tennis programs were treated to free day tickets to the tournament so that they’re able to watch the pros in action, something most would not otherwise have an opportunity to do.ADVERTISEMENT
USTA NorCal invited groups from all over the Bay Area, and included the Fresno Parks and Recreation, Richmond Parks and Recreation, Booker T. Washington Community Center, and many more who work with inner-city youth.
