Wellington Tennis Center To Host Free ‘Junior Jamboree’

The Wellington Tennis Center invites the community to attend a free “Junior Jamboree” Back-to-School Open House event on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 1 to 3 p.m. Bring the entire family for a fun day of tennis, games and give-a-ways.

All ages are invited to participate in youth tennis clinic games, drills and demonstrations with Director of Tennis Chuck Gill and his team of United States Tennis Association (USTA) certified professionals.

After working up a sweat, players can cool down with free samples from Jamba Juice while supplies last. At the conclusion of the event, one lucky participant will win a youth tennis gift basket valued at more than $300 (must be present at the time of drawing to win). Guests should dress in athletic attire and shoes appropriate for play. Sunscreen and additional hydration are also recommended.

While the event is free to attend, registration is required. Registration can be completed through Eventbrite in advance and on the day of the event. Visit www.wellingtonfl.gov/eventbrite to register. For more information, contact the Tennis Center Pro Shop at (561) 791-4775 or e-mail tennis@wellingtonfl.gov.
