These eight new Rising Stars, Lana Rodriguez, Destiny Jones, Alandrea Lugo, Aaleah Smith, Israel Edwards, Ziyan Hemingway, Amylah Carter and Nafi Curtis were participants in either Legacy’s after-school or community summer tennis programs. This special group of players were chosen to participate in the Rising Stars program based on a talent identification process that included their growing tennis skill-set, a strong commitment level demonstrated through their consistent attendance, positive behavior, and parental involvement. As part of the program, our newest Rising Stars have been enrolled in Junior Tennis Clinics at our flagship Legacy Center. There, they also receive free semi-private lessons and educational and guidance support. We congratulate these special players on being selected as Rising Stars!

Legacy Youth Tennis and Education players have opportunities to experience the US Open!

The US Open Tennis Tournament has the highest attendance of any sporting event in the world. Lucky for Legacy it’s an easy day trip to Flushing Meadows to watch the best players compete for the last major title of the year.

Last Saturday, September 1st, two dozen Legacy kids and their parents drove back up to the Open to participate in the USTA’s Net Generation event. As fans arrived for the day’s opening matches, hundreds of young tennis players in yellow t-shirts were on the courts hitting red balls over mini-nets. After the demo, each Net Generation rep got to stay on the US Open grounds for the whole day to watch their favorite pros play the game we all love.

The week before, on August 25th, we loaded up cars, vans and a school bus (sponsored by Legacy friend and Board Member, Maria McGarry) and over oh hundred coaches, players and their families attended Arthur Ashe Kids Day. Attendees got to see the pros hitting in the brand-new Louis Armstrong Stadium, watch qualifying matches on the outer courts, participate in practice drills, attend a concert in Arthur Ashe stadium, and basically have open access to the entire campus of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The highlight, of course, was a giant group photo of the Legacy family in Legacy shirts in front of the largest tennis stadium on the planet.
