International Tennis Day is almost here! Saturday – June 20 is the Big Day!

This is an exciting grass-roots attempt, supported by the United States Court Tennis Association and the United States Court Tennis Preservation Foundation, to raise the profile and catalyze interest in our game. Our goal is to motivate current players and to mobilize new ones who have never heard of Court Tennis or its origins. Modeled on the successful World Squash Day, International Tennis Day (ITD) will occur annually on June 20th. June 20th is the anniversary of the “Tennis Court Oath” during the French Revolution.

The forty-odd clubs that play this game around the world celebrate ITD simultaneously with clinics, exhibitions, marathon matches, parties or whatever suits them. You participate on social media by uploading your photos and words to Facebook or Twitter (‪#‎iTennisDay‬).
