LACOSTE players John Isner, Murphy Jensen, Dominkia Cibulkova and Pablo Andujar joined City Parks Foundation to welcome New Yorkers of all ages and talents to play tennis in a special clinic in Central Park to kick off the US Open Championships.
We all had a chance to learn from the pros on the game’s most integral shots: forehand, backhand, serve and volley, as well as compete for giveaways.
CityParks Tennis presented by Chase, provides free tennis lessons to thousands of kids ages 6 to 16 each year in nearly 40 parks throughout the five boroughs. LACOSTE is the Official Apparel Sponsor of CityParks Tennis. Opportunities include free beginner lessons, tournaments, leagues, excellence programs and special events.
