USTA Kids  SmashZone Kids  Tennis  San Mateo County Fair

 Description

The US Tennis Association SmashZone, the premiere fan interactive attraction at the US Open, will be stopping at the San Mateo County Fair and will be open to the public June 17th, 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm and on June 19th, 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.

SmashZone Mobile includes a 53-foot trailer, which anchors four kid-sized tennis courts for youth play and is a complement to the USTA's ongoing youth participation initiative, 10 and Under Tennis.

The trailer, which is handicap accessible, will feature interactive activities for visitors, including a Tennis Magazine Green Screen Cover Shoot, Wii Tennis and Touch Screen Kiosks. The kiosks will allow the public to find a facility in their area offering 10 and Under Tennis programming, and also will afford them the opportunity to design their own racquet (from an array of colors, frames, grips and strings), to become a USTA member, and to sign up for the Home Court Championship Sweepstakes, in which the USTA is giving away a tennis kit every day through the conclusion of the US Open. In addition, SmashZone will allow participants to try their skills on any of the four 10 and Under Courts, which will feature games such as "Champion of the Court" and a Target Challenge. All of the courts are made of Sport Court's high-performance PowerGame modular playing surface.
