The 2016 celebration of World Tennis Day on March 8 in the U.S. will feature the BNP Paribas Showdown at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where world No. 1 Serena Williams will take on former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, and Stan Wawrinka will battle the crowd-pleasing French star Gael Monfils.
As part of the evening’s celebration, a youth tennis exhibition will be held between the evening’s featured matches.
“World Tennis Day is a unique opportunity to promote the accessibility of the sport and inspire kids and families to lead healthy lifestyles,” said Katrina M. Adams, chairman, CEO and president of the USTA. “This special celebration throughout March is part of USTA’s commitment to create opportunities for families to engage in the sport and increase participation in local programs.”
In 2015 more than 50,000 young players participated in the youth events held in March, each designed to showcase how fun and easy it is for families to get into tennis.
