BCTA Play Day challenges local youth tennis players
Youth participants in the Bucks County Tennis Association (BCTA) Season 4’s five-week Learn, Practice and Play program enjoyed a superb fall day at the Core Creek Tennis Center in Langhorne during the BCTA Youth Team Tennis Play Day Challenge on Oct. 19.
Just under 30 players, ages 7 to 13, gathered at the tennis center for fun and friendly team competition, competing against their peers throughout Bucks County.
“It’s great to see the players demonstrate their tennis skills,” BCTA President Barbara Long said. “There were some great rallies and some very close matches.”
In addition to match play that included game strategies and tips offered by BCTA coaches, the youths participated in group games and the always popular hit-for-prizes activity, during which they can earn free tennis merchandise.
The afternoon concluded with the awards ceremony and photo-ops. Team standings follow:
