USTA fun at Fairgrounds tomorrow

Tennis will be part of Girl Scout celebration

USTA's SmashZone Mobile Tour will be at the Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary Celebration at the Alameda County Fairgrounds tomorrow.

SmashZone Mobile Tour has four kid-sized tennis courts with games to introduce children to tennis in a fun way. The trailer, which anchors the courts, has interactive activities such as a Wii Tennis and Touch Screen Kiosks.

The tennis event will feature a special appearance by Cymphonique Miller and Max Schneider, the stars of Nickelodeon's new hit live-action series How to Rock.

"I love tennis," said Miller. "With courts all across the United States, it's a sport that I can play wherever I am."

"I started playing when I was a little kid," Schneider said, "and it's one of those great sports that you can play your entire life and always have an awesome time."

SmashZone Mobile complements USTA's 10 and Under Tennis, which encourages young people to start playing tennis with shorter and lighter racquets, slower-bouncing balls, smaller courts and simplified scoring.
