USTA Eastern and City Parks Foundation are teaming up again to present the 4th Annual Battle of the Boroughs Tennis Challenge, an adult recreational tournament to be held in June and July in New York City parks. The tournament will feature the best of team competition and neighborhood pride, and support CityParks Tennis, which provides free tennis lessons and activities for children at 36 parks citywide.
"We are thrilled for the return of the Battle of the Boroughs Tennis Challenge to the Metro Region," said Jenny Schnitzer, executive director and chief operating officer of USTA Eastern. "The event will once again allow many of the best adult tennis players to compete in New York City’s parks and help children learn the sport of a lifetime."
"The Battle of the Boroughs Tennis Challenge allows adult players in our parks to again compete in a friendly atmosphere and represent their own neighborhoods and boroughs," said Mike Silverman, director of sports for City Parks Foundation (CPF). "We are excited for this annual tradition to continue to grow and help support CPF's free youth tennis instruction provided to over 7,000 players each year."
