The USTA Eastern Metro Region Board recently partnered with the Friends of South Oxford Park Inc. to organize a community tennis festival for kids. Metro Board member Mel Swanson took the lead to organize this event, along with other Metro Board members and community volunteers. The kids of all ages and skill levels took part in tennis drills, played for prizes and enjoyed delicious pizza for lunch. It was a great event and the Metro Board was very happy to support this community program. For more information on grants and community support, visit www.metroregion.usta.com.
