On Saturday morning 48 area 8-10 year old kids came out to XS Tennis Village ahead of the day’s matches to participate in the Red Ball Challenge. This kid-friendly tournament saw two teams face off against one another in two-on-two matchups while an additional court free for open play was available for those not participating in the Red Ball Challenge.
Oracle has partnered with the USTA Foundation and the local National Junior Tennis League (NJTL) chapters in Chicago to bring more opportunities to under-served youth. With tennis and sportsmanship at the core of the USTA Foundation and the NJTL mission, the Series is thrilled to support the organizations by partnering with local chapters and promoting their laudable cause. We believe that every child, no matter their background, should have the opportunity to learn and play the sport that we love so dearly.
