USPTA announces the one-clinic challenge

March 5, 2011

The USPTA has announced the One-Clinic Challenge for its 2011 Tennis Across America events to help fight one of society’s biggest problems today: obesity; specifically childhood obesity.

The USPTA is encouraging every member to run at least one Tennis Across America event to help spread the word that obesity is now an epidemic, especially with today’s youth devoting more time to computers and other technology than to exercise. In addition, it provides the opportunity to focus on the long-range health benefits of developing a habit of being active through tennis from early childhood.
