“Join USTA Florida for the Master Tennis Social event, with free food, beverages, raffle prizes and on-court play,” says USTA Florida Masters Tennis Coordinator Christine Murphy. “See how easy it is to play tennis with this new, fun, social format.”

The Masters Tennis format is played inside a 60-foot-lined court (as opposed to a regulation-size 78-foot court), using slightly slower and lower-bouncing “orange balls” that are not as difficult to get to. Easier on shoulders, elbows and wrists, Masters Tennis is bringing former players back to the game and introducing new players with the easy-to-learn yet competitive format.

Viera Masters Tennis Ambassador Barbara Wong and JoAnn Post will organize play at Heritage Isle, and the first 25 players to register for the Masters Tennis Social and attend will receive a US Open towel. All attendees will also be entered to win raffle prizes, including USTA memberships.

The Masters Tennis Social is a kick-off event leading into weekly play at Heritage Isle. More information on weekly play opportunities will be available at the event. Heritage Isle is located at 6800 Legacy Blvd., Viera, Fla.
