Balls will be flying all over the US as communities celebrate National Tennis Month for the 16th year in May 2013. Celebration of national tennis month was initiated in 1998 to support the USA Tennis Plan for Growth which aimed to increase the participation of tennis at every level in local communities, from beginners to seasoned professionals of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. The plan has certainly met their objective because tennis attracted 30 million participants in the U.S. in 2009. Data from the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association recently showed that tennis is the fastest growing sport in the country, with participation increasing 43 percent since 2000.
This May eTennis League celebrates national tennis month for the first time, since it has been launched this year. Here are the highlights of eTennisLeague May schedule.
Happy National Tennis Month! Celebrate it with eTennis League!
