The Young Aces Open began with the idea of expanding tennis into middle schools, and started with a group of local tennis advocates. A discussion of ways to grow middle school tennis in the city led to an initiative to first grow interest in tennis at the elementary level.
The Lobs & Lessons Family Open is an adult-child doubles tennis tournament that gives families the opportunity to play side by side and encourage the reluctant player, whether it is an adult or child. The tournament uses the QuickStart Tennis (QST) format. In addition to tennis, participants will enjoy food, prizes and an awards ceremony, in this non-elimination, round robin, family centered event.
