Free tennis for kids event to be held in Del Mar on Sept. 7

Del Mar’s Surf and Turf Tennis Club will play host to one of several United States Tennis Association free tennis play events in celebration of Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play, an effort to get kids active.

The free tennis play event will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Surf and Turf Tennis Club. The club is located at 15555 Jimmy Durante Blvd.

Other free events include: the Bobby Riggs Tennis Club in Encinitas on Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. -2 p.m., Sept. 12 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, and Sept. 15 at Ohana Tennis in Carlsbad from 12-1:30 p.m.

Health and fitness expert Bob Harper kicked off the month of festivities at a youth tennis demonstration at the US Open last week.

“My mission is to get out there, get kids more active, get them playing whatever sport they want to be playing,” Harper said at a USTA press conference. “I do believe there is a storm of change out there. There is going to be a shift. But we as a community have to pull together for our children, because our children need our help more than ever.”
