Today, in conjunction with the IMG Academy $10k Futures - a USTA Pro Circuit event, the tennis program hosted a special training clinic for more than 80 local youths between the ages of 5-12 at Kid's Day. Kid's Day participants arrivedfromLincoln Middle School (Palmetto, Fla.); New Gate School (Sarasota, Fla.); and Annie Lucy Williams Elementary (Parrish, Fla.), and for many of them, it was their first experience with tennis. The
aspiring players had the opportunity to receive hands-on coaching from the entire roster of IMG Academy coaches, including the legendary Nick Bollettieri, and were treated to lunch afterward. The clinic was free to all participants.
Kid's Day was a continuation of IMG Academy's ongoing community outreach efforts. In September, IMG Academy joined with Prince Global Sports LLC., to donate tennis racquets and hold a free coaching clinic for theManateeCounty North River Recovery Project.
The main draw of the IMG Academy $10k Futures is set to begin tomorrow, November 13 at 10:00 a.m. The event is open the public, and free of charge.
