“All youth will receive a ‘passport’ which will schedule their time on the Grandstand court to complete each station and get their passport stamped,” says USTA Florida Director of Marketing, Membership & Communications Laura Bowen. “Once all stations have been completed, they will leave the court, and can watch from the Grandstand seats or proceed to the USTA Florida Interactive Courts. We’re looking forward to having whole families playing together again on the Interactive Courts.”

The first 500 youth participants finishing can redeem their completed passports at the USTA Florida booth for a t-shirt and other gifts. Parents can also stop at the USTA Florida booth, adjacent to the Interactive Court outside the Grandstand, for tennis programming and play information in their areas.

Special guests will include famed coach Nick Bollettieri, ATP and WTA players, and an event D.J. to be announced. The Miami Open Kids Day will be covered by the Univision television network in addition to other media outlets.
