On Tuesday at the Sony Open, IMG Academy’s own Nick Bollettieri took time out to take part in the annual Lindt Kid’s Day event. Kid's Day at the Sony Open is held each year to give children an opportunity to see top players compete in a world class environment, and expose them to the benefits of participating in a sport that fosters good health, and can be played for a lifetime.

As a lifelong advocate and role model for living a healthy lifestyle, Nick Bollettieri spoke to the children in attendance on the benefits of tennis and healthy living. Bollettieri has always placed a high priority on youth outreach, and during the IMG Academy $10k Futures – a USTA Pro Circuit event held last November; Bollettieri hosted his own Kid’s Day in conjunction with the event to encourage the youth of Florida’s Manatee and Sarasota Counties with a positive message through the sport of tennis.
