The USTA Eastern Long Island Region will host a junior play date for children ages five through 13 on Monday, Jan. 16, when they are off from school for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The event will be held at the Long Beach Tennis Center, located at 899 Monroe Boulevard in Long Beach, N.Y., and will take place from 1:00 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. The cost of $25 per player includes round-robin play, refreshments and participation awards. Children will be introduced to the new USTA 10 & Under tournament play format which allows them to experience game play without the pressure of a tournament. Full-court round-robin play will be available for those ages 11-13.
