The Georgia Tennis Foundation’s Atlanta Circle Cup event celebrates its 15th anniversary at the historic Washington Park Tennis Center on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 10am-1pm. The fun day of games offers a unique opportunity for over 100 kids from the Washington Park neighborhood, Agape and Metro Atlanta YMCAs to be introduced to tennis by teaching pros and volunteers from GTF, USTA Georgia, AYTEF, USTA Southern and the YMCA. Some great players courtesy of Universal Tennis Academy/David Drew will play in an exhibition that will have kids smiling while enjoying a delicious lunch donated by Publix Super Markets Charities and then wrap up their unique tennis experience with a cool treat from Kona Ice Midtown.
The Atlanta Circle Cup is a great “kick off” event to get kids excited about tennis as a lifetime sport, GTF summer programs that are part of the Joe Dorn First Serve initiative and the benefits of USTA Junior membership. GTF has introduced tennis to over 101,000 participants at summer camps throughout the state. Thanks to the support of individual donors and partners like Publix Super Markets Charities, Arthur Blank Youth Foundation, USTA Georgia, ALTA Foundation, IberiaBank, WSB-TV and YMCA of Metro Atlanta, the Georgia Tennis Foundation hopes to continue growth and expansion of the Joe Dorn First Serve grass roots tennis programs across the state of Georgia.
