Holabird Sports is dedicated to growing the game of tennis and this past Saturday, we were proud to support USTA Maryland's "Hit and Get Fit Free Family Tennis Festival." The USTA Maryland chapter partnered up with the Annapolis Area Tennis School and the Anne Arundel County Tennis Association to present a free afternoon of tennis and fun for all ages. Hosted on the courts of the Annapolis Area Christian School, the event included tennis instruction, games, prizes, giveaways, raffles, face painting, music, healthy snacks, and drinks. The Bowie Baysox mascot and the Washington Kastles mascot even showed up to add to the fun!
Greg, Emily, Louie, and I had a great time and were excited to participate in the event. We brought samples of some of the hottest, most exciting new tennis shoes to display and we also brought some demo models of the latest, cutting-edge racquets for participants to playtest during the festival. The best part of the event was handing out Holabird Sports Mystery Gift Cards to lucky winners who hit the right targets on court. When all was said and done, participants, staffers, and volunteers all had a great time hitting, teaching, and helping—I know that the Holabird Sports crew did!
As a retailer and a member of the tennis community, Holabird Sports continues to be devoted to the game of tennis. By supporting grassroots efforts like USTA Maryland's "Hit and Get Fit Free Family Tennis Festival," we hope that tennis can continue to grow in popularity and attract players of all ages to the game.
