General News Diversity Festivals

USTA Florida will host a free Tenis para Todos (Tennis for Everyone) family festival at the Greater Naples YMCA on Sep. 30 from 6-10 p.m. The event is part of the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration and the new partnership of the two organizations through USTA Florida’s Tenis para Todos initiative to increase the participation of the Hispanic community in tennis. 

“It is our mission at the YMCA to strengthen the foundations of community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility,” says the Director of Tennis at the Bob Beckler YMCA Family Tennis Center Kevin Scott. “We feel privileged to partner with the USTA Florida Section in accomplishing our similar mission of service to the Greater Southwest Florida area.”

Families will enjoy a wealth of activities on and off the court, such as music, food, face painting, and more for all ages and levels of play. The first 200 registered participants who attend the event will receive a free t-shirt at check-in.

This fun family event will offer two special tennis play opportunities for participants, including XGLOsive black-light tennis — a fun, high-energy way to play tennis with black lights and neon colors. XGLOsive features games for all ages and levels of play. XGLOsive is limited to 120 participants, so register early.

“We see this exciting and unique event as putting the Greater Naples Y further along the path to become the Family Tennis Center of Naples,” says Board of Directors Chairwomen/Chief Visionary Officer for the YMCA Dr. Amy Chappell.
