On May 16, Long Island Tennis Magazine received the 2010 USPTA Eastern Publication of the Year at the Divisional Convention in Mount Kisco, N.Y. Through two-and-a-half years of publishing, Long Island Tennis Magazine has helped grow tennis in the Long Island area through its free magazine that informs tennis enthusiasts of all tennis-related news in the Long Island area. The magazine is distributed for free at more than 300 Long Island locations, which helps promote tennis to both current players, as well as prospective ones. In addition, the magazine recognizes those players, coaches and volunteers who contribute to the success of local tennis on Long Island. Long Island Tennis Magazine has become a full multimedia publication with an influx of readers keeping up with the tennis scene on Long Island by logging on to LongIslandTennisMagazine.com, as well as following the publication on Facebook and Twitter. The success of Long Island Tennis Magazine has spurned a second free publication, New York Tennis Magazine, which will debut with its first edition on July 5 and will focus on coverage in the five boroughs of New York and will be distributed throughout the five boroughs. Long Island Tennis Magazine is very thankful to USPTA Eastern for recognizing it with this great award.
