Play Tennis Midwest released the following:

Children and adults (ages 5+) will have an opportunity to play on local courts at Swinney Park on Friday, May 13th, 2022. The best part: There’s no cost to play. Even better: If you don’t have a tennis racquet, one will be provided to you onsite!
Last year, our inaugural “Play Tennis Midwest” events took place at 60 different locations across five states and attracted more than 2,100 attendees of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Since 2019, tennis participation has grown significantly (Forbes, Racquet Sports Industry Magazine, with 4.9 million more people taking to the courts.
